"I make this recipe all the time and I always receive compliments. I change around the salsa and barbecue flavors occasionally or add lima beans instead of the butter beans. It's easy, reasonable in cost, and goes over well for potlucks or gatherings of family and friends."

"These are awesome!! I get rave reviews every time I make this dish. This recipe makes a LOT of beans, though. I halve it for smaller gatherings."
