HAWAIIAN BEAN HASH
Instead of serving pork and beans straight from the can (how dull!), why not add a few tasty ingredients to make it sparkle like a hula dancer's eyes as she tosses a fragrant lei around your neck and says welcome? It's enough to warm up even the coldest midwinter night.
Serves 6 (1 cup)
2 (16-ounce) cans navy beans, rinsed and drained
1 ( 8-ounce) can Hunt's Tomato Sauce
1 1/2 cups (9 ounces) diced Dubuque 97% fat-free ham or any extra-lean ham
1 (8-ounce) can pineapple chunks, packed in fruit juice, drained
1 tablespoon dried onion flakes
2 teaspoons prepared yellow mustard
2 tablespoons Brown Sugar Twin
In a large skillet sprayed with butter-flavored cooking spray, combine navy beans, tomato sauce, ham, and pineapple. Stir in onion flakes, mustard, and Brown Sugar Twin. Bring mixture to a boil. Lower heat and simmer for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.
