"If I had left out the cayenne and the 3 T. of sugar, this might have been a good side dish. As written, however, and even though I cut WAY back on the cayenne, this was a strange combination of sugary..." See more sweet and fiery hot that just didn't work."
"i thought this was so unusual and really good. i gave the recipe 4 stars because i thought 3T sugar would be over-the-top sweet, and i think i was right. i cut the sugar back to 2T which was really ..." See moregood, but i acually think 1T would be the perfect amt. i only used abt. half the onion called for b/c that's all i had, but that worked just fine. i was worried that the beans would get mushy after cooking for so long, but they held up just fine. the title sums up exactly what this dish tastes like, so if sweet and spicy is not your bag, you best move on ;-)"
