Sweet & Hot Baked Beans

    I made this for our Memorial Day picnic and my family liked it. I thought the pineapple was a nice added flavor. You would need to add extra jalapeno if you really want heat. I thought that it wasn't all that hot.

    This was way too sweet. No one liked it at my cookout. I am going to try adding an additional teaspoon of vinegar and mustard to it, hopefully that will cut some of the sweetness.

    Unfortunately no one in my family cared for this recipe.

    I am very sorry, I don't want to hurt the submitters feelings, but this was terrible! I was so excited about making it, I love pineapple. I thought it would taste excellent, but it didn't. It came out crunchy and vinegary tasting. Mine was very watery, not thick at all. I was hoping for so much more.
