This mighty meaty medley of beans is a side dish tailor-made for hunting camps, tailgates, family gatherings and church functions.
An improved version of chuck wagon beans, this hearty recipe will steal the show at any potluck dinner. It pairs particularly well with barbecue fare such as grilled burgers, chicken, hotdogs and ribs.
It freezes well, and I often keep pint-sized bags in the freezer to pull out and thaw on short notice.
If someone asks why they’re named Blazing Saddle Cowboy Beans, just smile and tell ’em they’re from the Old West, and they’re good for your heart.
