I've made these beans for years. Very kid pleasing! Will serve 6 unless Bart is there! Great at home, too. Serve chilled, warmed or room temp. I like to have Texas toast with these. Hope you like them!

All I can say is WOW did this recipe turn leftovers into a fabulous and fast meal! I had 5 hot dogs and 1 small slider size burger left from a BBQ. . .added those to a big ole can of pinto beans and used all the other ingredients (which I always have on hand) resulting in the best Beans & Dogs that I have ever had. I did throw in an extra squirt of ketchup to get the color I wanted (since I didn't use pork & beans) and used 1/2 Splenda and 1/2 brown sugar to lighten it up a bit. LOVE the use of horseradish and the pickle relish. Thanks so much for sharing!!!
