Best BBQ Beans (Twin City Grill)

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Heart N Soul

From the Twin City Grill at the Mall of America. This is my all time favorite BBQ Bean dish. I think they taste best after a day or two, so they are perfect for those of us who love to get things done in advance! The only change I make is I use butter beans in place of lima.

My family and guests loved these. I was a little iffy with the variety of beans, but it came out wonderfully!
