1 cup of corn
3/4 cup of your favorite BBQ sauce (our favorite is G Hughes Maple Brown Sugar free BBQ sauce )

About an hour before serving, smash the beans and add in the corn and BBQ sauce.
Serve with warm cornbread and a fresh green salad!

(You can also attach a small baggies with the corn to the larger bag so you don't accidentally use the corn for another recipe.) When ready to use, take the bag out of the freezer the night before or a few hours before placing in the crockpot. Cook as directed above.
