I love most kinds of beans, but I think true baked beans are a southern tradition. Comparing pintos to baked is like comparing red beans and rice to chile. Two different things. Now that said, I want to try both Phil's and the pinto trio recipes!
On a different note, my wife hates beans. I don't know if it was before she met me, or after she smelled one of my bean incidents? ;)
