Storage Of Beans
Any leftover beans you will want to store them in the refrigerator. Since there is bacon they will store for 3-4 days. If you leave the bacon out they will store for 5-6 days in the fridge.
To reheat the beans just place in a plate or bowl, and lightly cover with a paper towel, and heat in the microwave. Or warm them up in a pot on the stove.
Northern, navy, or pinto beans are the three varieties of beans that are generally used to make these beans. I prefer to use Northern beans or pinto beans.
