Baked Beans You Will Love To Make For Dinner

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Baked beans are sometimes baked, but they are also cooked on top of the stove. I have been known to make baked beans in a slow cooker. They are more like baked beans in a sauce made with different ingredients. I really like bell peppers, onions, and bacon. It’s that time of year when you may need a new recipe to take to a neighborhood party, or possibly a family reunion. I want to share this really good baked beans recipe with you today so you can try it ASAP before you go to your next get-together.

I like my beans with a little thicker sauce so I like to cook mine without a lid or cover on the pan in which I bake them. You can use your favorite barbecue sauce, but I tend to like of these in the recipe:”Sweet Baby Ray’s Barbecue Sauce” or “Kinder’s Barbecue Sauce,” it’s your personal preference.

    1. I hope I’m allowed to answer this. Make, don’t buy canned beans. It’s so easy. To prevent the gas: soak dry beans in lots of water over night. Drain in the morning and cook slowly several hours with fresh water.

    2. Hi Deb, I wrote an article about this very thing: Anti-Gas:
      I found this great product while teaching classes in a store in Salt Lake City, Utah. It is Organic Ajwain Seeds. After you soak your beans, drain off the water and cover with fresh water and add the required amount of Ajwain seeds. You just add 1/4 teaspoon of Ajwain Seeds to 2 cups of dry beans while cooking. The spice smells so good. It’s like a Mexican seasoning. It’s organic and adds flavor to the beans, as well as the anti-gas factor! I still add my favorite spices like cumin, chili powder, cinnamon, cocoa, etc. Ajika Organic Ajwain Seed, 2.2-Ounce. I bought them on Amazon. I hope this helps, Linda

    1. Hi Tom, the recipe calls for black beans but I only had pinto beans and white beans, any beans would work. It’s all about the other ingredients that give it the flavor. I love these beans. Linda
