Well, I attempted beans in my slow cooker for the first time and it came out great! Check out Slow Cooker Beans . So now I was excited to use them. This recipe is adapted from Family Fun magazine. I really liked this dish because most of our dinners are served with a carb; rice, cous cous or pasta. We eat a lot of that stuff. This dish was so filling so you didn't miss the side. I will definitely make this one again! As for the reviews - Little Man finished his plate (left a few spinach pieces behind though but that was expected.) Sweet Girl had seconds. And luckily, there is a lot leftover so my husband can enjoy a big bowl after he gets in from his 8 hour drive tonight. Enjoy!
