  • Reviews

  • “I really liked this recipe.The beans had a nice “kick” to them.If you don’t like spicy food, omit the jalapenos.”

  • “These were really good. Not spicy enough for me. Next time will add more peppers. Thanks for the great recipe.”

  • “Good alternative to regular baked bean. I’m always looking for something different with a Tex-Mex flare to go with a Mexican casserole. This time I served with Recipe #191502 and Recipe #225290. I was a bit confused about the size of beans, I’ve never seen an 8oz size can of bean, so I ended up using 2 cans of the 15 oz cans and one8 oz can of tomato sauce.”

  • “Prepared this dish for a large family feast and was happy with the finished product.I used the big cans of pinto beans found in the ethnic aisle of the grocery store.Liked the size and texture and will use them in other recipes. Was able to use garden fresh jalapenos and Walla Walla Sweet onions.Since my oven was loaded with enchiladas, I used my crock pot for the beans and just let them simmer for a couple of hours. Great texture, terrific compliment to the rest of the meal.This will stay on my list of favorites.”

  • “What a deliciously different recipe for baked beans! I found this seaching specifically for baked beans with pinto beans. I’m glad I did! I did not have the jalapeno peppers, but the kiddos would not have liked them anyway. I did add just a dash of Frank’s hot sauce to add a touch of hot flavor. I doubled the recipe, and had no leftovers! Thanks for submitting a nice change of pace for baked beans!”

  • “Very easy to make and full of flavour.I did not have jalapeno peppers and found there was still a good kick to this recipe.Thank you.”
