Hot Bean Compote

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by jean1490

If you like bean salad, you should like this dish. It is from a Pillsbury cookbook I got when I was first married. My family does not care for kidney beans, so I use 2 cans of green beans with the wax beans.

this is pretty good.... i didn't have wax beans or green beans so i used great northern beans instead and it was surprisingly sweet and nice.
