I found this recipe in a cookbook left to me by my mother. Over the past 20 years, it's been a big hit with my family, especially with those who love kidney beans. Using English muffins instead of hamburger buns is a nice change. - Mauvereen Cannady, Portage, Wisconsin

"This recipe was really good and the flavors blended together very well. The taste did remind of a chili dog, but still yummy. Just to spice it up a bit we topped our sandwiches with siracha."
