  1. I added 1 pound of mild sausage and 2 cans of Rotel, Plus 1 more pork and beans. Oh I used green Lima beans for some color. Took to to a Memorial Day party and everyone was saying how great it is! Thanks for the recipe
  2. I wasn't as impressed with this recipe as the other two reviews were- this didn't seem to be so much a casserole as it was a thick, sweet-tasting chili. We had to serve it in bowls with spoons. The kids (seven of them) ate it all, though, so I won't say it was bad, I just don't think it is a keeper.
  3. Made this tonight for my family of three. Lots of leftovers but that is ok because we loved it! Will use it as a sidedish tomorrow. This would never serve 24 the way it tastes, just loved it! Thanks Trisha W
  4. This recipe was the hit at the 4th of July party. The only change I made was using dried kidney and lima beans. Now this is an almost must for pot luck's when I have to contribute. At this one 24 servings would serve about 8, considering the people that were continously dipping into it.
