We love beans!!! Packed with so much nutrition but most of all with fall approaching time to dive into a nice bowl of baked beans. Great for end of summer BBQ, Bonfire & Potluck. These will go fast and everyone will ask for your recipe. I'm not a lima bean lover my hubby is so added them to please him. Truth is I can't even taste the lima beans. You can choose which method to cook these "oven" or "crockpot" I have provided directions to both.

Sounds and looks awesome, Natalie! We love beans, also. My hubby does not like lima beans, but I do. He probably won't even notice them :)

Enjoy Michelle from one bean lover to another. Sometimes I crave beans for breakfast and make a refried bean mixed with scrambled eggs and eat with warm tortillas. So defin. bean lovers here. I don't care for lima beans but I can't even notice them in the baked beans. My hubby on the hand is happy just knowing they are in there.
