It's all about the trinity: one can of Heinz Vegetarian Beans, two long squeezes of Heinz Tomato Ketchup, and one big shake of Heinz Chili Sauce. Watch the sauce thicken as it heats in the pot—go on, lick that spoon as if it were pudding. Then grill a frankfurter and taste its salty snap surrounded by the velvety cloak of those beans, lush and sweet yet slightly vegetal. Crunch, chew, melt, mush. Heaven.
Heinz Vegetarian Beans, $4.60 for a pack of three at Amazon.com
