    Just tried this recipe tonight. I accidently changed the recipe just a little. I added 4 TBSP of brown sugar before I remembered it was supposed to be 2 Tbsp, but they were still great!!!! I did add 2 shakes of Frank’s Red Hot sauce (I like everything a little spicy)and I used the chili powder (actually Hot chili powder). These were really easy and the chili powder really perked them up. We will make these again!

      Hi Bill George:
      The added brown sugar was a good idea as it probably balanced out the additional hot spices. Great addition ideas!I also have tried a few slices of bacon on top of the beans before baking. Delicious!
