This recipe was sent to me by my good friend Sweetie over at Basics Matter for the Frugal Food Series: Beans.
While she uses canned beans in this recipe, you could easily substitute dried beans that you have soaked and cooked for the kidney beans and possibly the pork & beans (great northern or navy beans either plain or made up into a homemade pork & beans recipe)
