This recipe was easy and really tasty! I added the optional Liquid Smoke, ditched the salt and used 2 tablespoons of brown sugar which was plenty. If you make this add 2 tablespoons of brown sugar and do a taste test of the sauce before adding more. I also used brown medium grain rice and added spot shrimp for more protein. It was perfect for a side dish and could be a main dish with added shrimp or meat.

This was good and easy. I only had 2 cups of rice so just used that. For us it was enough. My husband is not a pinto bean man but really enjoyed this. I will make again maybe change it up a bit but still a great base recipe.

We did not like this recipe at all. I think theKetchup & mustard ruined it. Just our opinion .

I made this for an elderly man that I cook for to bring to a potluck he was going to, and when he saw it he said, "Wow that looks good! I'll try to be first in line so I can get some." When I tried it it tasted very good and I think I'll make it at our house too. :)

I MADETHIS RECIPE AND WE REALLY LIKED IT. I COOKED MY OWN PINTO BEANS BECAUSE THEY DON'T HAVE ALL THAT SODIUM IN THEM. I TOO WOULD COVER IT THE NEXT TIME OR PUT A LITTLE MORE LIQUID IN THEM. I DIDN'T THINK IT WAS TOO SWEET. I WILL DEFINITELY MAKE THIS AGAIN. I HAD SOME COOKED RICE I NEEDED TO USE TOO.

This was good for a baked bean dish, but I only put in 1 can of beans (that was plenty for us!). It was pretty sweet with only 2 Tbsp brown sugar and turned out kind of dry being cooked uncovered. I'd cover it next time.
