I love beans of all types. But my favorites have to be Baked Beans in a sauce comprised of mollases and Splenda, with onion, yellow mustard, and a good ham hock cooked in it until all of the collagen is dissoved. I love just a great quality hot dog heated with the beans.
Now take those baked beans and replace the Splenda and mollases with Maple Syrup and you have something very special, not necessarily better or worse, but more luxurious and deliscous.
I'm also a sucker for Van Camp's pork & beans with hot dogs.
Polish sausage and keilbassa also work with the beans as well.
Beans soup is right up there on my list of favorites.
Refried beans are so versatile, and can be a vehicle for other flavors. Gotta acknowledge them on this post.
Kidney beans belong in chili, and taco salad. That's just one of the natural laws of the universe.
Chick peas in three bean salad, how can you go wrong with that.
Four bean salad is even better, with green and yellow-wax beans, chik peas, and kidney beans.
And the list could go on and on.
