I love lima beans. I use to add ketchup or bbq sauce and not rinse the beans. Now I rinse and eat them plain. I still love em.

red kidney beans, and I hate washing the sugar water off them cause it tastes so gooooooooood! But now that I'm living a healthy life style (Ha) I rinse the poor beans like a good girl should before I put them in my food.

As strong as the mightiest, too.
You can win in every battle or test;
For there's no one just like you.
There's only one you in the world today;
So nobody else, you see,
Can do your work in as fine a way:
You're the only you there'll be

Hey, it's okay not to love beans. :) Me personally, I love almost all beans,(actually one I'm not so crazy about is the jellybean) but my DH is harder to convince.(although he does like jellybeans, go figure) Thanks everyone for sharing. I had no idea this thread would be so fun, funny, or make me so hungry. emoticon

Unfortunately we're not big bean fans here in my house, and I know we need to work on that. I have started making a white chicken chili with cannelini beans, and could eat that every day!

Garbanzos, also known as chick peas. Saute them in a little fresh garlic and olive oil. Then add some fresh spinach for a couple of minutes until it is wilted down. Delicious bean recipe.

I like green beans too. I've fixed a really great Spark recipe that uses green beans, red peppers and a tomato vinagrette dressing. Really, really good.

There was much rejoicing!

My vote goes to pinto. I like them plain, topped with raw onions, can't go wrong making a good tvp chili added to them and always good mashed and reheated commonly known as refried. Not my Southern hubby's favorite he prefers lima beans to most any meal and not impressed with my southwestern choices. emoticon

So, beans certainly help stretch a food budget and my question for you all is....What is your favorite bean and what bean dish do you like to prepare/eat?
