Ellen came to visit me over the weekend and I knew if I didn’t have food waiting for her she would punch me in the mouth. I wandered around the internets for awhile looking at recipes for inspiration and feeling out my own hungries for ideas, and decided that I wanted something that involved beans and barbecue sauce. Apparently in this country they call that “baked beans.” Oh and putting pineapple in there seemed like a good idea too, so I did that.
2 cans of pinto beans
1 medium sized onion
1 8 oz. can of crushed pineapple
1 tablespoon soy sauce
2 tablespoons maple syrup
1/3 cup barbecue sauce
Directions? Oh! Just dump all that stuff into a kettle and cook it for a long while or put it in a pan and bake it for awhile or put it in a crock pot and let it cook for a good long time. That was easy! So, since that’s so simple you can make something else. Buy some cornbread mix and make cornbread muffins. Fold in one jalapeno and make it a little spicy. Yum!
Now Ellen won’t punch you in the face when she gets here!
