Quick Bean Main Dish

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by Toni in Colorado

A different version on baked beans. I like it because the sauce is not thick like most baked bean recipes. I use Van Kamps Pork and Beans. I tried it the first time in the 1970's and got it from the Texas Home Economics Teachers Cookbook.

Good for a college kid on a budget or soldier with limited rations, not a weekly thing for any other adult.
