Reviews for Slow-Cooked Bean Medley
Sort By :
"I've been making these for years. I add cooked ground beef & I double the sauce (2 cups ketchup, 2 cups brown sugar & 1/4 c of vinegar). Always bring home an empty crockpot :)"
"I'm surprised that this bean dish got such high reviews, because I thought it was rather bland. I think that maybe substituting barbecue sauce for the ketchup would punch up the flavor, but I won't be making them again. It was an attractive dish, with the color from the peppers and corn, but was really lacking in flavor. Not bad- just bland."
"I put ground beef in. It was a big hit"
"I'm not sure how I liked this as a side dish, but (as another reviewer suggested) it was great with fritos! i can see how it would be a great hot dog topping as well."
"Excellent change of pace with baked beans."
