Crockpot BBQ Beans
These beans are super yummy! They aren't authentic pioneer beans, but they sure are good and your family won't know... I promise! These are good as a main dish or a side dish for your pioneer dinners or every day. We eat a lot of beans at our house. The kids love them like this. They don't even mind the green beans. I usually make my pinto and kidney beans from dried and freeze them in 2 c. containers for recipes.
This dish can be made several hours ahead of time, which is really nice! You can even make them a day ahead, keep them in the fridge and just heat them in the crockpot.
