Spicy Black & White Baked Beans

This recipe is a spicy and sweet alternative to a boring traditional baked bean dish. When I serve these for my guests, they go crazy over them. The ginger, spicy barbeque sauce and balsamic vinegar give this dish a unique and spicy/sweet kick to it that everyone enjoys. I love using black and white beans to make the dish stand out differently than a traditional baked bean recipe. Trust me..this is a keeper and will be a favorite when you put on a summer BBQ spread.
