Do you have a good canned bean recipe?

Hi Moms,

I have canned beans that my mom gave me and the kids will not eat them. Do you have any recipes that you have used and your kids have eaten them.

  • Depending on the beans you can make chili. I use ground beef or ground turkey, onions, chili seasoning, tomatoe sauce and tomatoe paste. I use hunts tomatoe products onion powder, seasoning salt, black pepper, garlic powder, sazon,and last but not least adobo. These all are to season the beef or turkey to each is your own this works for me my kids love it . Also if there bake beans my friend put me on to hot dog and bake bean bake. Your favorite hot dogs prepare as normal, and white rice about two cups follow direction for preparing rice on package. Once hot dogs and rice are done u will need a baking dish.Open your cans of bake beans place them in the baking dish with hot dogs and rice. Add white sugar, brown sugar, and cinnamonto taste place in a 300 to 350 degrees for 15 to 20 min and enjoy.

  • Depends on the type of beans, but you could try to make chili with them. Add some hamburger and chili seasoning, then simmer for a while.

    You could mush them and add a little taco seasoning and make refried beans for taco salads.

    Sorry, that's all I got!

  • I actually made chili last night with canned black beans, as suggested above. I added chili seasoning, and we topped it with cheese, sour cream and chips... oh a few other toppings too. I also put it in soups -- seems like they get eaten a little easier that way =-)

  • Depends on the beans. When I make chili, I add kidney, canellini and black beans. Soup gets canellini and/or black beans, sometimes red & white kidney depending what soup it is. If they're white beans, canellini, or pinto, you can make bbq beans...add some browned ground beef or pork, bacon, and minced onion and your favorite bbq sauce and simmer.
