Beans and franks is easy and made with a few more ingredients than just plain beans and franks. How many times have you said,  “I wish I knew what to “fix” for supper?”   We love this with cornbread muffins. Children will like it, too.  There are lots of days when I have to throw something together for a quick meal and this is a favorite with my family.  This makes a great weeknight meal and it’s made in a skillet.

2 (15 ounce) cans pork-n-beans, drained

1 (1 pound) package franks, cut up

3 tablespoons butter

1/2 cup chopped purple onion (can use green onion or regular onion)

1/2 cup chopped green pepper

1 (10 ounce) can diced tomatoes with green chilis, drained

1 tablespoon spicy brown mustard

1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce

2 tablespoons molasses

1/3 cup brown sugar

1/2 teaspoon oregano

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon black pepper

Shredded cheddar cheese, Optional

Melt the butter in a skillet on top of the stove.  Brown green pepper, onions, and cut up franks.  Add the drained pork-n-beans, drained diced tomatoes with green chilis, mustard, Worcestershire sauce, molasses, brown sugar, oregano, salt and pepper.  Simmer about 20 minutes. Can sprinkle on shredded cheddar cheese either while still in the skillet or individual servings.   Makes about 6 servings.  Enjoy!
