Chipotle-Maple Beans

If your household is like ours, the grill gets a regular workout throughout the summer months. A convenient grill is one of the things that changed for the better when we moved to our current cottage two years ago. It is so handy to have it on our back porch, just right outside our kitchen! Steaks, hamburgers, chicken breasts, and seafood are routinely found on our summertime dinner menus and prepared on the grill. 

So we’re always on the lookout for side dishes that are easy to fix, flavorful, and healthy. This bean recipe is a winner! In addition to serving it at family meals, this would also be a great dish to take to a covered dish party.

We routinely keep canned beans in our pantry and stock up whenever they are on sale. Except for a can of chipotle chilies in adobo sauce, the rest of the ingredients should be part of your typical pantry stock too. (We use these chilies in other recipes, so we always have a couple of cans on hand.) I hope you give this recipe a try soon!


  1. Oh, yum! I love the flavor chipotles add...smoky/spicy/delish!

  2. It says that I must seek permission to see the recipe. ;>

    Those beans provide a colorful combination.

  3. Excellent recipe and pretty to look at. I'm chopping onion!

  4. Oh these look yummy and chipotles are a regular staple in OUR pantry. LOL!

  5. That does sound good. I love vegetarian beans....right out of the can! haha! I mean I don't heat them...not that I EAT them out of the can! lol We grill almost every night. Guess what we grilled last night? Bacon. My hubby sprays the grill with 'grilling Pam' and cooks it on low with the top up. It gives it a smokey good flavor and no mess in the kitchen. I eat beef bacon and we made BLT's last night. Hugs!
