Kidney Bean Bake
If you like chili, you are going to want to try this yummy Kidney Bean Bake! It’s fibre packed and loaded with flavor.
I wouldn’t recommend you eat this dish if you are meeting someone for the first time. Beans are notorious for causing gas. With your family though? Who cares! Eat up and enjoy 🙂
I used canned kidney beans in this recipe. I like the convenience and I read somewhere before that a raw kidney bean can kill you. They need to be cooked properly which the canned kidney beans are already.
My favorite bean is the kidney beans. My first pick is the white kidney bean with the red kidney bean coming in a close second. I always put them in my chili. Do you?
Kidney Bean Bake Ingredients
For this recipe, you’ll need two cans of red kidney beans. Drain the liquid out of one of the cans and leave the other can untouched (with the liquid still in it).
You’ll also need the following:
- Chili sauce
- Relish (I used green pickle relish that you put on hotdogs and hamburgers)
How to Make Kidney Bean Bake
Start by preheating the oven to 375F.
Add the kidney beans, salt, chili sauce, relish and onion to a bowl and stir to combine. Pour into a 1.5 quart casserole dish.
Dot the casserole with butter and cover. Bake for 35 minutes. Serve hot.
Store any leftovers, covered, in the fridge, up to 3 days.

What could replace the onions? No one in my house likes whole pieces of onion. (The taste is ok, it just has to be pretty well pulverized)
You could just leave them out and it would still be good.
