These beans are fast, easy and taste great with barbequed meats.

I didnt have the beans stated but I had canneloni beans and black beans and used all the other ingredients as stated. Delicious!!! I have tried to limit my meat intake so I eat a lot of beans and veggies. I used this bean recipe as a buritto stuffing. I added the beans mexican cheese cilantro tomatoes! and a dollop of sour cream. Sooooo good! Read More

So bitter! I made the recipe exactly as stated and it was bitter. I know it's because of the beer but maybe other cooks could reccommend a particular brand of beer? I tried to salvage this by adding brown sugar and although it helped a little the strong bitter aftertaste was too much. Read More

I LOVED this! I went with the dark kidneys to give it different color and I used Miller Lite for the beer. I am not much of a beer drinker anymore but love the flavor and boldness it adds to food. I added raw onion to the top of my beans but that is just something my family did growing up and a habit I don't care to break. I've shied away from can goods here lately but this is one I won't be shying from period. I really enjoyed this. Thank you for sharing SweetBasil! Read More

Nice side and good change from sweet baked beans. Sauteed a little onion and chopped country ham. Added beans dried tabasco pepper and chopped green sweet pepper with other ingredients. Instead of beer I've made this with a half cup or so of picante sauce. Read More

Made this with Corona beer and substituted 2 serrano chili peppers for the jalapenos (personal preference -- we just like the flavor they give a little better) thought this was a tasty flavorful easy side dish -- a definite keeper! Thanks so much! Read More

I have to disagree with the other reviews. These beans didn't have a great flavor...they just tasted like beans. Definitely not a keeper. Read More

I'm right there with MOLLE 888 - - when I read their review I thought "HUH??" but sure enough my batch too was bitter and like MOLLE I wondered if it was the type beer. But!! When all else fails - - - add chicken broth - yes that made all the difference in the world improved the flavor. I didn't care for all the excess liquid and didn't want to cook the daylights out of it so I added a sprinkle of rice - - tada - - beans and rice!! Now I can't get my husband to lay off of it! He'll have it gone before dinner if I'm not careful! Read More

This was quick and easy to prepare and I like all the ingredients that go into it. But it was missing something; red onion might add flavor. Read More
