Variations and tips
Baked beans: after cooking this ranch style beans, give everything to a casserole and bake for around 10 minutes at 410°F.
Chili with ranch beans: these are also delicious for chili. I would suggest adding a bit corn and bell pepper to it. The preparation is the same as above. Really delicious with a dollop dairy free sour cream on top, yum.
Quesadillas: it makes such a mouthwatering quesadilla filling. Just use it as filling like I did in my Vegan Cheese Quesadillas. Sprinkle some vegan cheddar or your favorite cheese on top, enjoy.
Texas ranch style beans: use ancho chilies instead of chili powder. Ditch the green beans, use more pinto beans and you’ve got a super easy and delicious Texas ranch style beans in no time.
