These were really good. I would have preferred to heat them up before covering with the sauce, because I wanted a hot side. But I followed the directions, and enjoyed them with the warm sauce and and the cold beans. Think next time I'll time the sauce and the beans to come off at the same time so I'll have a hot side dish. Loved the toasted nuts! Made for Photo Tag game.
