Most of us have turned to canned beans in moments of need. Whether it's chickpeas on a salad for lunch at the office, or pork and beans as a late-night dinner, canned beans are easily transformed into a quick, simple, and hearty meal. This version is somewhere between BBQ baked beans and the classic can of Heinz beans that's a staple for any full English breakfast.
Working on the premise of an empty pantry, this is a basic recipe that's simple and ready to enhance based on what you might have around. Don't have a can of cannellinis? Try navy beans, or even kidney beans, instead. Out of ketchup? Give BBQ sauce a try. And while the only seasonings I lean towards are Worcestershire, salt, and pepper, both smoked paprika and crushed red chili flakes would add another layer of flavor.
