I got this recipe from my awesome sister in law who is an excellent cook! She has shared some of my all time favorite recipes! These beans are no exception! They are to die for and everyone who partakes of them is a fan; even the most finicky eaters! I even won a chili cook-off with these and they aren't even chili!
Perfect for your July get-togethers!
