I thought twice about making this recipe because I'm not a big fan of pork and beans. I don't like my beans sweet, however, the sausage balanced the sweetness out nicely. They were a breeze to prepare once I had the tomatoes, beans, and sausage mixed. The pepper Jack cheese was great, it added the right amount of spiciness for me. Next time I would like to add a vegetable, maybe some corn or green peppers. The kids were split, my younger said they were yummy, my elder said they were too spicy.
