Southwestern Baked Beans

Three kinds of beans and a host of seasonings make this version of baked beans a winner. Southwest flavors dominate in this dish that's perfect with grilled chicken. Leslie Adams - Springfield, Missouri

    It was quite the twist. I think we would have liked it if they weren't so sweet. It was just weird.

    This recipe was so absolutely delicious! I love the sweet and tangy sauce. One substitution I made was garbonzo beans for the northern beans because thats what I had on hand. I made it up and ate it for a warm comforting lunch all week. I will be definitely be making this again... and again.
