Indian Beans

I don't know why this is called Indian Beans. I did some research online and it took me all over the place looking at Middle Eastern, Native American, Northern Indian, Southern Indian, South Asia Indian, and even the Cleveland Indians! All were different, none with exactly the same, I'll just leave it as is.

All I know is it looked like baked beans. I wanted to eat something with beans and it was easy. After eating it, found out it's delicious and very filling! Yum!
