I went with Thirdeyes beans because of the originality of the dish.
Cheese is a double bonus as a topping.

Love the other two dishes as well, never can go wrong w/a pot of bean soup!

They all look great. I'm going w/ the "which one would I stick my face in first" test and casting a vote for iceman78's entry.

:eusa_clap:eusa_clap:eusa_clapHad to go with Ice!!! Something about that pic made me wanna jump in the pot face first. Those big ole bacon strips floating around in their just called to me. The competition is fierce as well. I could feel Rick's beans just sticking to my ribs and Thirdeye's Poblano Bean Boats look killer too!! Wish I had seen those last year. I had so many pob's from the garden I dint know what to do with em!!

Understanding all of these are certainly better than I could make and nice job to all three entrants....
Gotta go with Thirdeye based on originality. Those really look awsome and cheese is sort-of like bacon.
Nice work!

I concur, all 3 were great but I'm voting for Thirdeye on this one and have saved the link and recipe to try at home.
Congrats to all for outstanding entries.

Those peppers (I mean beans) look awesome Thirdeye. They look pretty straight forward, anything special we need to know if we decide to try making them ourselves?

No not really, the link to the recipe is in the bean throwdown thread (also below)..and like I said it's more of a technique because you can add or delete about anything you want. Something else I like to add to them is shredded carrot, but I didn't have any the other day.

Thanks everybody for the kind words, but as far as being original, it's a Stephen Raichlen recipe that I got from the BGE forum 2 or 3 years ago. I have made them often enough to know how I like them, but play around with the ingredients, and different types of beans. With every type of canned bean I have used, rinsing is critical. I have also made all white ones, with great northern beans, white cheese, chicken, onion and garlic. Anyways, the best thing about these is the time factor.....about one hour from the time you decide to make them to the time you eat them. :biggrin:

The hardest part is getting the thickness of the mixture just right, and not adding too much cheese, and also not filling the shells too full because it swells. this first picture is the mixture in the skillet. The next one is ready to go onto the cooker. I added just a pinch more of melting cheese.

Mad BECAUSE there is a shot of my beans (15 Pounds of them) I did last week on my 1967 Miranda Sensorex 35MM camera. Shot of the beans sticking to the back of the spoon in a huge sweet 1/2 clump.

It is shot number 3.... nope I am not gonna shoot 21 other shots to turn my pics to have these guys whip my ass anyway.

Great beans yall.
