If you weren't a big fan of lima beans as a kid,it's definitely time to give them a second chance! The smoky-rich taste of this dish makes it a great accompaniment to your favorite meaty supper, especially pork. Cliff gobbled his down with a satisfied grin, so I knew I'd "done good!"
1/2 cup chopped onion 1/2 cup chopped green bell pepper (I didn't have green so I used red) 1 cup (one 8 oz can) Hunt's Tomato Sauce 2 tablespoons Brown Sugar Twin 2 tablespoons pourable Sugar Twin (I used Splenda) 1 teaspoon Worchestershire Sauce 30 ounces (three 16-ounce cans ) butter or lima beans, rinsed and drained 2 tablespoons Hormel Bacon Bits
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Spray an 8 by 8 inch baking dish with butter-flavored cooking spray. In a large skillet sprayed with butter-flavored cooking spray, saute onion and green pepper just until tender. Stir in tomato sauce, Brown Sugar Twin, Sugar Twin, and Worchestershire sauce. Add lima beans and bacon bits. Mix well to combine. Pour mixture into prepared baking dish. Bake for 1 hour. Place baking dish on a wire rack and let set for 5 minutes. Divide into 6 servings.
Cookbook says it freezes well.
Each serving equals: HE 2 1/2 Protein * 1 Vegetable* 12 Optional Calories
