Delicious homemade slow cooker baked beans even higher than the ones you grew up on! This simple baked beans recipe makes use of three kinds of canned beans, is completely sweet with a kick of heat if you would like, and is well made vegetarian. Add them to nachos or quesadillas, serve them as a dip and extra!

  • 8 oz uncooked bacon, diced
  • 1 yellow onion, diced
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 (15 ounce) can pinto beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 (15 ounce) can kidney beans, rinsed and tired
  • 1 (15 ounce) can northern white beans, rinsed and drained
  • ½ cup ketchup
  • ¼ cup molasses
  • ¼ cup highly spiced bbq sauce (or your favorite bbq sauce -- use a sweet one in case you like sweeter baked beans)
  • ½ cup packed darkish brown sugar (or sub coconut sugar)
  • 1 tablespoon worcestershire sauce
  • ½ tablespoon yellow mustard (or sub dijon)
  1. Cook your bacon: upload diced bacon to a big skillet or pan and position over medium heat, cook bacon till crispy and golden brown. If the pan begins to smoke at any point, merely lower the heat. I at all times prepare dinner my bacon on medium low warmth. Once bacon is finished, blot with a paper towel to soak up extra grease. Allow bacon to chill.

  2. Drain the bacon grease, leaving just a little on the backside of the pan and upload in the diced onion, cooking for 5-8 mins or till they are reasonably golden. During the closing minute of cooking, add on your garlic and cook for 1 min. Remove from heat and put aside.

  3. Add the drained and rinsed pinto, kidney and northerly beans to the slow cooker, then add in the bacon and onion/garlic. Next upload in the ketchup, molasses, bbq sauce, brown sugar, worcestershire and yellow mustard. Stir with a wood spoon till the entirety is easily combined. Cook on prime for 3-4 hours or low for 6-7 hours.

You can feel free to swap out any kind of beans you’d like, or even upload an additional can of beans to this recipe but I really like my beans a bit saucier! I think black beans would additionally work really well on this recipe.

You don’t have to use dark brown sugar, however I find that it adds more flavor than every other kind of sugar (together with mild brown sugar). Please know that darkish or light brown sugar or coconut sugar will work smartly.

For sweeter baked beans, use a sweeter BBQ sauce. I really like the usage of highly spiced bbq sauce (Stubb’s is my fav) because I think it provides a pleasant distinction to the wonder of the recipe.

These baked beans are superb over nachos, in a quesadilla, as a dip with melted cheese on top, served with hen sausage, or anything else you'll be able to dream of! YUM.

To make them vegetarian, be at liberty to skip the bacon.
