BBQ BAKED BEANS--MY WAY

I personally LOVE baked beans... many are tastey but just average.
I have found that adding fresh onion and green pepper makes just about anything taste better and baked beans are definitely no exception.
The beans are "sauced" up w/an "improved" shelf bbq sauce, Add a pound of bacon and you've got something really special. Something that stands out among the multitudes of other b.bean recipes.

Use a "hickory" bbq sauce as the base of your recipe. Only thing that makes this any better is covering the outside of the pan w/foil and smoking it outside on the bbq grill.

This is a great dish to eat with grilled food, BBQ, or sandwiches. I think it would go well with a holiday baked ham too!

This dish smelled soooo good while it was cooking that my family lined up at the stove with forks when I pulled it out! They literally ate half of the dish before I put the rest of dinner on the table. I did add the jalapeno (seeded and diced). The cooking process mellowed the jalapenos and gave the dish a perfect kick of spice. The Test Kitchen
