Barbecued Lima Beans Baked

READY IN: 2hrs 15mins

These are the best! Not being a Fan of limas I just adore these. It may be the hot cheese or the sweetness of the brown sugar. I don't know but it's just too GOOD! It's a great side or serve over rice for a main meal. You can also skip the bacon if you're not into meat! You can add liquid smoke!

My step-son, daughter, and I are the only ones in my house who LOVE limas. My husband, step-daughter, and son will eat them but like to fuss about it. This recipe sure hushed them up. I used half pepper-jack cheese and half plain mj cheese because I wasn't sure how hot it would be. I have to be careful when cooking for the kids. That was just right for us. The bacon was a big plus that added to the barbecued flavor. All six of us thought this was worth 5-stars. We thank you.
