Reviews for Cowboy Bake Beans
"I have been using this recipe for years! I have yet to meet anyone who does not like it! I really want to find a chili recipe that is similar to this!!! Anyone have one?????"
"Iv'e got a batch of Cowboy Bake Beans in the crockpot now.I did change things around a little - I added stew beef instead of ground beef. I used 4 cans of the same variety of beans, instead of the recommended mix of 5.In addition, I diced a fresh tomato into the mix and used less brown sugar, as the full amount would have been sweeter than I like."
"everyone loved these, and they are so easy to make"
"I always make this in the crockpot. Often I carry it to church potluck suppers or family cookouts. It is always popular. I have shared this recipe with many friends. I use whatever types of beans I have on hand -- even frozen green beans and butterbeans. It is very forgiving of bean types. Instead of condensed tomato soup, I use tomato sauce. Great as a main dish served with brown rice."
"This is a very tasty version of baked beans I would and do serve at all my BBQ's a very must try."
"I am trying the recipe today, but why does the caption mention tomato PASTE??"
"This is a great recipe! I substitute some fresh sausage and baked ham for some of the hamburger, using about 1/3 of each meat and put the ham bone in the pot too."
"I love this recipe. It is easy and makes a great potluck dish. Friends always want me to bring this great side, it goes with anything."
