1/3
cup barbecue sauce
1/2
teaspoon salt

Expert Tips

We found that canned beans taste and look better when cooked on low rather than on the high setting because the beans won't overcook and become mushy. The long, slow cooking enhances the already-cooked beans with the flavors of the other ingredients in this dish.

Maple syrup adds a sweetness that complements the delicate flavor of lima beans. You can use the same amount of molasses if you prefer a heartier flavor to go with the barbecue sauce. And if you want a bit of meat added to the beans, add a 1/2 cup chopped fully cooked ham.

For an extra taste treat, top these beans with additional barbecue sauce and sprinkle with bacon-flavor bits before serving.
