Cranberry Sausage Baked Beans (Easy version)


We adapted this in March 2003, then I even simplified it more.
 Takes about 10-15 minutes.


2  fully-cooked smoked sausage links sliced  (optional if you’re vegetarian)
1 tsp cumin seed, or less if powdered or ground up (can use Taco seasoning or leave it out if you don’t have it)
1 (28-oz) can Baked Beans  (B & M Original Brick Oven or other brand)
1 (16 oz) can Pinto beans
1 (4.5 oz) can Chopped Green Chiles 
1/2 can whole berry cranberry sauce
1/3 cup sweetened dried cranberries  (expensive, optional, but oh, are they good!)
1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes (may be left out if you’re wimpy)
8 oz. tomato sauce or part barbecue sauce

1.Not that difficult, add everything together in a pan, and heat.  If you put them in a Dutch oven, it looks like you’ve been slaving over the fire all day.
