WOW-- these beans are full of flavor! I love how the sweet of the apple butter combines with the bacon for a sweet/smokey flavor but then you get the surprise BAM of the sriracha! This is the only way I'll make baked beans from now on! This recipe is a follow up to my Head-Over-Heels Apple Sriracha BBQ Sauce recipe also posted here on JAP. This sauce is SO versatile!
