Slow-Cooked Beans

This flavorful bean dish adds nice variety to any buffet because it’s a bit different from traditional baked beans. It’s a snap to prepare, too, since it uses convenient canned beans, barbecue sauce and salsa. —Joy Beck, Cincinnati, Ohio

    I make this recipe all the time and I always receive compliments. I change around the salsa and barbecue flavors occasionally or add lima beans instead of the butter beans. It's easy, reasonable in cost, and goes over well for potlucks or gatherings of family and friends.

    These are awesome!! I get rave reviews every time I make this dish. This recipe makes a LOT of beans, though. I halve it for smaller gatherings.
