I tried Allens products in a couple recipes
We received all the cans that are pictured above but I only used the two canned beans.
My family really liked the pinto beans that we tried. I made a fast lunch made from rice and pinto beans with a little chipotle in adobo sauce. The kids ate it in corn tortillas and lime drizzle. My husband mentioned that the beans tastes good but had no salt, he’s a big salt eater and I am not, so I never salt our food. I guess the can of beans we got were the low salt version. I was fine with that but he had to salt his dish.
I used the baked beans with strips of hickory smoked pork riblets and slow cooked it together. I topped the mixture on top of yellow rice and a side of corn on the cob. This was my sons favorite dish, he ended up eating 3rds.
