Beans are a standard with fried fish, same for slaw. Potato salad is optional but recommended.I bought one of the larger cans of baked beans and added pintos and black beans to them, along with brown sugar, ketchup, a sweet bbq sauce, dry mustard, onion powder, granulated garlic, dried onion flakes,and a bunch of veggies: onions, poblanos, red bells, and minced jalapenos.I was making a lot of beans so I used a lot of veggies. Sweat them down separately and then combine with the beans. I bake mine “for a while”. You want to reduce the liquids a bit. This batch cooked for an hour at 350 but they could’ve cooked longer. I filled a big plastic container and froze the rest. I hate running out of beans.
