Canned Pork and Beans

Tess Geer Recipe

By Tess Geer dmsgrl

This is an old Ball recipe and it is GOOD! I think it would be very tasty if some of the ketchup was switched out for prepared chili sauce.

    Thank you so much for this recipe. I'm on sodium restriction and can alter this recipe to meet my needs. I even found salt free heinz ketchup, so this is a save for me and now I won't be deprived of one of my favorite picnic foods.

    my mother would make these in a big roasting pan, and there was never any left , we would end up making a meal out of the beans 8]
