Description

This recipe will quickly become a staple of your backyard BBQ spreads. It ditches the typical canned beans for a colorful array of dried beans including red beans, great Northern beans, and pinto beans. The combination gives the dish a unique earthy flavor that pairs beautifully with the sweet and spice from the BBQ sauce. It’s simple to make and cooks unattended, leaving you time to smoke some killer pulled pork or ribs, or grill some super-moist chicken. For the BBQ rub, the recipe creators use their Cooks with Soul Carolina Que BBQ Rub, available on their site, but you can use any favorite blend. The recipe is a Yummly original created by Marrekus and Krysten Wilkes of Cooks with Soul.

    Loved this recipe! Speed up the process by cooking the beans (soaked the night before) in my pressure cooker (in the chicken broth) essentially skipping step 8 saving 3-4 hours and didn't need to cook the full final hour in the oven only about 30 min. Not for everyone but to hot to turn my oven on all afternoon was way to hot!
