Sweet 'n' Sour Beans Recipe

"This bean dish is surprisingly low in fat, even with the bacon in it. I adapted it from a higher-calorie version that used ground beef," offers Carla Specht from Annawan, Illinios. "This is great served as a side dish with grilled meats...or over rice as a main dish."
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Bake: 55 min. YIELD:8 servings


  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup cider vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder

  • 1 can (16 ounces) kidney beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 can (15-1/4 ounces) lima beans, rinsed and drained
  • 4 Jones Dairy Farm Dry-Aged Bacon strips, cooked and crumbled


  • 1. In a large nonstick skillet, combine the brown sugar, cider vinegar, garlic powder and mustard; bring to a boil. Stir in onions. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 15-20 minutes or until onions are tender. Add the beans and bacon.
