January 6th is National Bean Day! Here are a couple of bean recipes to try. This short video shows you how to make yourself some famous Boston Baked Beans. While this recipe takes quite some time to prepare, it is extremely easy and the time involved is mostly for soaking the beans and cooking them, not that you will be cooking for hours. The end result is well worth it.

If you're looking for a meal to cook up with beans rather than just a side; then this Chicken Enchilada Casserole is worth trying. Always a hit with family as well as guests.
