Your best tried and true CANNED beans recipes, please

The Dairy Queen | Jan 10, 2013 07:31 AM

Okay, I'm a giant fan of this epic beans thread, but the emphasis is (understandably) on recipes that call for cooking dried beans, from scratch.

I know it's cheaper and more healthful and more delicious to start from scratch, but despite my best intentions (that beans thread is from 2011!) I just haven't been able to incorporate from-scratch beans into my diet as frequently as I would like to due to time constraints and hectic, unpredictable schedule, laziness, ennui,etc.

And when I've tried to adapt those "from scratch" recipes, I always seem to misjudge cooking times or whatever and end up with a mushy mess.

I would really like to incorporate more legumes into my family's diet. As a baby step in that direction, I humbly request your best CANNED beans recipes. Sides, mains, meatful, meatless, slow cooker, dessert, you name it, if you've got a tried and true recipe for canned beans, I would love to hear about it!

I figure some legumes are better than no legumes. And perhaps once we come to really view them as staples in our diet, we can branch out into cooking beans from scratch.

Thank you!
