Canned pork and beans can be heated and served as-is, but they’re easily dressed up with a few extra ingredients. Here are some ideas for using pork and beans!
The Pioneer Woman has a fabulous recipe on her blog that calls for canned pork & beans, Quick Southern-Style Baked Beans. These beans are baked at a low temperature with strips of bacon on top — delicious!
These Crockpot Pork & Beans look yummy too. Canned pork & beans are combined in the slow-cooker with pork chops and a few other ingredients. I use my slow-cooker often, and I tend to pull it out even more frequently in the summertime when I don’t want to turn on the oven!
Here are a few more recipe ideas using canned pork & beans:
Bean Dip – Place canned pork & beans in a blender or food processor. Add a teaspoon each of minced onion, ketchup, sour cream, and mustard; blend until smooth and serve with corn chips!
Chili Macaroni – Brown a pound of ground beef with some chopped onion and garlic. Stir in one small can of tomato sauce, a can of pork & beans, and a teaspoon of sugar. Cook a box of macaroni; drain and add to beef/bean mixture. Season to taste with salt and pepper!
Spicy Pork & Bean Salad – Cook some chopped bacon and onion until bacon is crisp. Place in a bowl and add three cans of pork & beans, a small can of green chiles, and 1/4-cup each of chopped cilantro and salsa. Chill overnight and serve!
