Made this for our family's Cinco de Mayo party- we're Scottish & Slovak but you sure couldn't tell by the menu! Anyway, these beans were a big hit. Then the following day, I smashed them with a potatoe masher and fried them in bacon grease to make refired beans and they were even better. I'll never go back to canned beans again. This recipe is a definite keeper at our house.
- 2 cups beans
- 3 slices bacon
- 1⁄2 tomatoes
- 1⁄4 cup onion
