Stove Top Barbecue Beans

We got this recipe from Cooking Light, The Essential Dinner Tonight cookbook. It was one of our Christmas cookbooks from Costco, and has some really delicious meal ideas.

This recipe was a side dish, along with coleslaw, for a very tasty pork chop recipe with a Carolina rub. This is a very simple and tasty dish. Instead of just opening a can of baked beans, you can make this spicier bean dish, in just a few minutes.

The ingredients have been adjusted for 2 servings.
