Sweet and Sour Baked Beans - With a Kick

60 mins (prep 15, cooking 45)
9 ingredients
2-4 servings
When the weather turns cold, there is nothing nicer then a bowl of something hot to warm your soul. Packed with protein, loaded with flavour, and very economical. May be served as a side dish, or by itself with a hunk of fresh bread. Don't want to waste that sauce. Created for the 2010 Dining on a Dollar Contest. Update: Nov 10/10 - Based on the reviews made during the contest, I have reduced the amount of vinegar by half in the ingredient list. It certainly would be easier to add extra vinegar, then try to reduce it. If there's another 'Vinegar Freak' out there, the original amount was 3 tbsp. :) Thanks to the chefs that made and reviewed the recipe.
