This sweet and tangy side dish uses lots of convenient canned goods, so it’s a snap to throw together. “The recipe was sent to me by a friend,” says Barbara Gordon of Roswell, Georgia. “It’s nice to serve at a group picnic.” TIP: “This dish can be cooked in the oven instead. Cover and bake in a 350° oven for 40 minutes. Remove cover and cook 10 minutes longer.”

"These are really good the way they are, but to "kick it up a notch" i put in a pound and a half of browned ground beef or ground turkey."

"These are quick & tasty. I use many different beans such as black, pinto, butter & white beans along with the kidney & lima beans. My family does not care for the green beans so we leave them out. This is a popular dish for pot lucks too."
