Spicy Baked Beans


I only make this recipe once or twice a year, and it is such a treat. The bacon makes this dish so wonderful. This recipe also calls for a great sauce that I had the opportunity to try, Country Bob’s sauce. It is full of flavor.  You can find it in Walmart.  I have also done this recipe without the sauce, and it is very good, but this sauce makes the baked beans extra special. You could also substitute 2 tablespoons of worcestershire sauce.

1 lb great northern beans, soaked overnight
4 cups water or vegetable stock
2 jalapeños, chopped, with ribs and seeds removed
1 small can tomato paste
1/4 cup dark brown sugar
1/4 cup molasses
2 medium onions, chopped
1 lb smoked bacon, chopped
1 teaspoon black pepper
2 teaspoons kosher salt
1/4 cup Country Bob's All Purpose Sauce, or 2 tablespoons worcestershire sauce


You will either be using a dutch oven in a 250 degree oven for this recipe or your trusty crock pot.
Soak beans overnight.

Place bacon and onions in saute pan or a dutch oven and saute until onions are tender. Then place onions, bacon, and all other ingredients in your pot.

Either place in crock pot on low for 6-8 hours, or in a preheated oven in a dutch oven at 250 degrees for 6-8 hours, or until beans are tender.

    That sounds delicious with the addition of smoky bacon. This could be good with bread. I think this would be perfect for a rainy day like this.

    this sounds wonderful. i usually think twice before i order beans in a restaurant because 9 out of 10, it’s too salty for me. so i should start cooking beans home. this recipe will be great for me, cuz i love anything spicy and my husband bald loves anything to do with bacon ^^

    This is a great baked bean recipe! Try using some Hurst’s HamBeens® Great Northern’s and the smokey flavor packet adds even more complexity to the delicious sauce.
