DALLAS (KDAF) — It’s bean-time baby! July has arrived and the summer is here to play and stay for a little while and that means barbecues will be had across the world and especially in the U.S.

Sides are one of the most important items a successful barbecue needs and you can’t beat a side of beans. Refried, baked, however, you want them, you deserve the best of ’em. July also just so happens to be Beans Month!

NationalToday says, “Beans Month is celebrated every year during July. An entire month has been kept aside to celebrate this humble food that can be eaten in many ways — delicacies can be made by boiling, simmering, and currying beans, which can be served either hot or cold.”
