    This was really good, but too spicy for me! I used mild enchilda sauce for a first try. I used the Jack, but it really didn't need it. It was sweet, spicy and good. DH really enjoyed it! Thanks amber

    These are very different to baked beans I have made in the past. I halved the recipe and used turkey bacon, mild chili beans, and mild enchilada sauce. It wasn't specified, but I drained the pork & beans as I like very thick baked beans. I didn't have any pepper jack so used a 4-cheese Mexican blend (and only about 1/4 cup). I enjoyed these for a change of pace, though I don't know if I'll make them again. Thanks for sharing!

    We all really enjoyed these baked beans as it was a change from the usual type of baked beans. They turned out perfect and tasted really yummy! Thanks Rose of Sharon....

    Totally-awesome baked beans! My husband and I really enjoyed this tremendously flavorful dish. Next time I'll add the shredded cheese nearer the end of baking so as not to overbrown it. Still a very highly recommended recipe!!

    I made these tonight and they are fabulous! I cut the recipe in half as there are only two of us. I wasn't sure what you meant by chili beans but I had some cans of chili spiced mixed beans in the cupboard so I used a can of those and a can of my coveted B&M pork and beans. I also didn't have any enchilada sauce, so used a small can of thick tomato sauce to which I added some spices for enchiladas. Otherwise I did everything the same as the recipe called for. I can see that these beans will be a real favorite around here from now on. Served them with warm tortillas. Thanks!
