Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
4 cups (two 16 oz cans) cut green beans -- rinsed and drained,
and 1/2 cup liquid reserved
20 ounces (two 16 oz cans) great northern beans -- rinsed and drained
1/2 cup (3 oz) finely diced Dubuque 97% fat-free
ham -- or any extra lean ham
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup chunky salsa
2 tablespoons Brown Sugar Twin

"Tangy-sweet and simmered slowly, this beans-and-ham combo brings out the best in all the ingredients! You'll be intrigued by how a spicier-than-usual salsa is tamed just a bit by some added sweetness--and a cooking time that lasts and lasts."

1. In a slow cooker, combine green beans, great northern beans, ham, and reserved liquid. Add onion, salsa, and Brown Sugar Twin. Mix well to combine. Cover and cook on LOW for 6 to 8 hours. Mix well before serving. Serves 6 (1 cup). Freezes well.
