BANDITO BAKED BEANS
I can't take credit for this---the Pace web site had it and I couldn't resist it! This goes great with most any party or picnic food. I prefer to transfer the mixture to a casserole dish and bake at 350 degrees F. for about 20 minutes or until heated through.
Serves: About 6

1 cup Pace Picante Sauce
1/4 cup molasses
2 tablespoons packed brown sugar
2 teaspoons prepared mustard
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 can light red kidney beans (16 ox. -- rinsed and drained
1 can great northern beans (16 oz.) -- rinsed and drained
Chopped green onions
Shredded Cheddar cheese
Crumbled tortilla chips
In a large saucepan, combine picante sauce, molasses, brown sugar, mustard, onion powder and beans. Heat just to a boil. Reduce heat to low; cover and simmer 10-12 minutes. Serve, topped with green onions, cheese and tortilla chips.
