Jenny's notes for this recipe:
1986 was the first time I made this dish. I was a newly-wed and I was very eager to impress my in-laws! My father-in-law sat there and critiqued the dish, breaking down every ingredient...I was sweating bullets!! And then he walked up to me and told me "these are the best baked beans I have ever eaten!!" Since then I have been crowned the "Baked Bean Queen!" I even have people request them as a Christmas present, and every family function, I don't even ask anymore...I just bake & take!! ENJOY!!

I've already landed my man, but still enjoy the stuffing out of these beans! The flavor is extremely robust thanks to the addition of the taco seasoning. A terrific side dish with ribs, hamburgers, or just about anything!
