Plated + Served: A Flavorful 4th!


As you know, Mama grew up in Texas where if you have a cook out, beans better be on the menu!

If you’re doing the cooking for the Fourth of July, or bringing a dish to someone else’s barbecue, why not make these flavor-packed Baked Chili Beans with Roasted Onions.

I originally wrote this sweet and spicy bean recipe for Seventh Avenue and used their cast iron roaster to make it. I like this roaster because cast iron absorbs heat evenly, blending the flavors deliciously. I like this recipe because it is high in fiber and low in fat. You can also use canned beans!
