Few activities are better for summer holiday ideas than BBQ cooking recipes. What goes better with BBQ cooking than baked beans? To save time, I use canned pork and beans, but believe me – these beans are awesome! For spicier beans, use a small can of diced green chilies instead of the bell pepper. You might also want to add some chili powder or ground red pepper for some heat.
Super Baked Beans recipe
2 cans pork and beans (28 ounces each)
1 large Vidalia onion, diced
½ cup bottled barbecue sauce
1 tablespoon prepared mustard
½ cup brown sugar, packed
½ pound ground beef, cooked, drained, and crumbled
1 green bell pepper, diced
2 teaspoons Liquid Smoke
6 strips thick-cut uncooked bacon
Directions: To save dishwashing, I combine everything in the pan that I’m using to cook the beans. Just mix everything together but the bacon strips. Use a 13 x 9 pan or Pyrex dish. Once everything is mixed together well, lay the 6 strips of bacon on top.
Bake uncovered at 300 degrees. Check the beans after two hours. I usually cook this recipe for about three hours, but your oven might be hotter than mine. Also, cooking time depends partly on how much liquid was included in your canned beans.
