Quick N' Dirty Ranch Style Beans (Use up Leftovers!)

Recipe by jenna sais quoi
READY IN: 20mins


  • 2
    leftover cooked chicken breasts
  • 3
    leftover cooked pork loin chops (Any combo works here, you could also throw beef or ground turkey, or even taco meat or tofu into the)
  • 0.5
    (18 ounce) bottle barbecue sauce (I used the Trader Joe's Brand, which has a kick to it!)
  • 3
    (16 ounce) cans chili beans (I used Bush's- it comes in a spicy sauce)
  • 18


  • Shred/dice/crumble meat into a good-sized saucepan.
  • Add BBQ sauce and beans- heat over med/high until bubbly. Stir in brown sugar, and keep stirring occasionally until sugar is dissolved and mixture is heated through.
  • I like to serve this with mac n' cheese, succotash, and a green salad -- plus maybe some garlic bread if I am feeling decadent. Yum!
