What's in the Crockpot Wednesday? Mango Beans
Yes, we're in the middle of the toasty days of summer. So when I saw this recipe for Mango BBQ beans I knew I would not only be modifying it to what I have on hand at home, but would be putting it together in the crock pot.
My version contains:
can of organic black eyed peas
can of conventional kidney beans
can of organic black beans
a bunch of organic green beans picked by my daughter at our CSA farm yesterday, cut into pieces
two yellow CSA onions, chopped
two purple CSA onions, chopped
four cloves CSA garlic, chopped
five cloves CSA garlic, whole
can of organic tomato sauce (I know, I should have used CSA tomatoes. I realized that after I poured the can in.)
Trader Joe's frozen mango halves
a little tap water
a couple of shakes of pumpkin pie spice (we seem to have run out of Allspice and I felt that was as close as I could get)
I plan to add the liquid smoke later. Not sure if I will need any agave, will taste test later in the day.
Can't wait to try it later.
UPDATE: Added liquid smoke and some Agave/Maple syrup. Not too great calorie/carb wise, but the beans do taste delicious.
