How to Make Canned Pork and Beans Taste SpecialIntro:  Instead of just opening a can of pork and beans, heating them on the stove, and then serving them, take a little time to create an easy version of baked beans on the top of your stove.  This recipe takes very little time and can make even the cheapest can of pork and beans taste special.


•Can of pork and beans

•Green pepper, chopped -- about ½ a green pepper is plenty

•Red onion, chopped -- use enough to suit your own taste buds

•Brown sugar -- about 1/3 to 1/2 cup

•Crushed red peppers, to taste

•Garlic salt, to taste

•Cracked black pepper, to taste

•2 tablespoons mustard

•3-4 tablespoons ketchup

•1-2 teaspoons Worchestershire sauce

Step 1:  Drain the pork and beans and pour into a medium-sized saucepan.

Step 2:  Add all of the ingredients and stir well.

Step 3:  Heat over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until heated through and serve.  That's it!


•While it really does not matter what type of pork and beans you use, I really like the Bush's Bold & Spicy Baked Beans.  If you do use canned beans like these, do not drain.

•You can hate fresh hot peppers to this recipe, if you are so inclined.

•This recipe also works well in the oven or on the grill.  Add strips of bacon across the top for extra flavor.
