I have never made baked beans before. My mother made them, and my sister makes them, but I never have. I guess I didn't want to compete. Until now. These are guaranteed to be awesome.

How to Make NOT TOO SWEET DUTCH OVEN BAKED BEANS

Step-by-Step

  1. In a large Dutch oven, cook bacon over medium-high heat until crisp, about 7 minutes, stirring frequently. Add onion and 1/4 tsp. of the salt; cook, stirring occasionally, 5 to 7 minutes, until onion is soft. Add garlic and cook 1 minute, stirring so it doesn't brown.
  2. Add beans, ketchup, brown sugar, Worcestershire, Dijon mustard, dry mustard, chili powder, cumin, pepper, remaining 1/4 tsp. salt and enough water to just cover beans. Stir to combine and bring to a simmer.
  3. Carefully transfer to a 6-qt. slow cooker and cook on LOW for 8 to 9 hours, until beans are tender. Taste and adjust seasonings before serving.
