Scrumptious Sweet 'n' Spicy Baked Beans

      I served this dish to many at a local Bean Days festival this summer and       heard many comments about how they thought they were the best beans in                                                               town. 

               ...And several came back for second...even third helpings! 

I combined and simplified ideas from a couple other bean recipes online, 
and this is what I came up with...MMM!

The BBQ sauce and chili powder add a bit of 'zip' to this tasty recipe!

This is not a HOT dish...just with a little kick-back to them...

(If you prefer to 'tame' this down, use a BBQ sauce with less tang). 

These are great for reunions, BBQ's, picnics or camping!

Hope you'll try them and see for yourself. 

Everything's better with bacon in it, right???? 


1/2 # bacon, diced and browned, undrained
1 small onion, chopped
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/4 c. brown sugar
1/2 c. Sweet 'n' Spicy BBQ sauce
(or your favorite)
2 Tb. white vinegar
2 tsp. worchestershire sauce
1/2 tsp. (fresh) ground pepper
1/4 - 1/2 tsp. chili powder
1 can (15 ozs.) pork and beans, undrained
1 can (15 ozs.) great northern beans, drained
1 can (15 ozs.) chili beans in sauce, undrained

Preheat oven to 350. In a large skillet, cook bacon; remove from pan with slotted spoon when browned, leaving half the grease in pan; (reserve remaining grease) cook onion until transparent and tender in grease; add garlic; cook 2 minutes longer. 

Place onion mixture in a large bowl with remaining ingredients, then add browned bacon and remaining grease. 

Place in lightly sprayed 3 qt. casserole dish; cover and bake 40 minutes; uncover and bake 30 minutes longer. 

Serve hot or at room temperature.
