I LOVED this! I went with the dark kidneys to give it different color and I used Miller Lite for the beer. I am not much of a beer drinker anymore but love the flavor and boldness it adds to food. I added raw onion to the top of my beans but that is just something my family did growing up and a habit I don't care to break. I've shied away from can goods here lately but this is one I won't be shying from period. I really enjoyed this. Thank you for sharing SweetBasil!
So bitter! I made the recipe exactly as stated and it was bitter. I know it's because of the beer, but maybe other cooks could reccommend a particular brand of beer? I tried to salvage this by adding brown sugar, and although it helped a little, the strong bitter aftertaste was too much.
I didnt have the beans stated but I had canneloni beans and black beans and used all the other ingredients as stated. Delicious!!! I have tried to limit my meat intake so I eat a lot of beans and veggies. I used this bean recipe as a buritto stuffing. I added the beans, mexican cheese, cilantro,tomatoes! and a dollop of sour cream. Sooooo good!
Nice side and good change from sweet baked beans. Sauteed a little onion and chopped country ham. Added beans, dried tabasco pepper, and chopped green sweet pepper with other ingredients. Instead of beer, I've made this with a half cup or so of picante sauce.
Made this with Corona beer, and substituted 2 serrano chili peppers for the jalapenos (personal preference -- we just like the flavor they give a little better) thought this was a tasty, flavorful, easy side dish -- a definite keeper! Thanks so much!
I have to disagree with the other reviews. These beans didn't have a great flavor...they just tasted like beans. Definitely not a keeper.
This was so good and simple. going to use it during office outings.
This was quick and easy to prepare, and I like all the ingredients that go into it. But it was missing something; red onion might add flavor.
