Craving Beans



Craving Beans

The story behind this dish is that once you eat it, you end up craving it.  It works as a main dish or a side dish.  And you can make it in the slow cooker or make on the stove.  This is also a pantry meal, as most of the ingredients will already be in your pantry.  And if you cook it on the stove, it only takes 30 minutes.

  • 1 can (16 oz.) red kidney beans, undrained
  • 1 can (16 – 28 oz.) baked beans, undrained (I use vegetarian)
  • 1 can (16 oz.) butter beans, undrained
  • 4 to 6 hot dogs, sliced into small rounds
  • 2 tablespoons dried chopped onion
  • 1 heaping tablespoon prepared mustard
  • 1/2 cup ketchup
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper

Combine all of the ingredients in a 5 to 6-quart slow cooker or Dutch oven.

If using a slow cooker:  Cover and seal the pot and cook until thick and bubbly, 7 to 8 hours on low, 3 to 4 hours on high.

If using a Dutch oven:  Cook over medium heat, stirring often, until the mixture begins to bubble.  Reduce the heat to low and simmer, uncovered, until thick, about 30 minutes.

Serve hot.

Serves 4 to 6.
