Beanie Weenie for Grownups

When I was a kid, one of my favorite dishes was Beanie Weenie. Open a can of Van Camp's Pork and Beans, cut up a couple of hot dogs and toss them in, simmer until hot. It was kid food heaven! I still like it, but these days I like it with a little more kick. Here's my recipe, Beanie Weenie for Grownups (2-3 servings)

1 can Pinto beans
1 4oz can diced green chilies
1/2 tsp paprika
3 tsp dark brown sugar
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp cumin
4 hot dogs, cut into bite-sized pieces
salt and pepper to taste

Combine all ingredients in a saucepan and simmer over medium-low heat until fully heated through. Serve in a bowl and garnish with grated cheese.

Enjoy!
