BBQ Beans


My husband loves baked beans. This is one of his favorite recipes. The problem with baked beans in my house, is that they never last. There’s never left overs; and there’s never seconds for some people. Usually my older one and my husband eat seconds and thirds before me and my younger one get our first helping done. These beans didn’t have a chance! The boys had them gone before I blinked an eye. I’m honestly not even sure I made it to the table with them. The one thing I can say to watch out for is that you don’t over cook them, or let them run out of liquid. It’s easy to happen.

2 15oz cans of pinto beans (don’t drain these)

2 teaspoons of cornstarch

2 tablespoons water

1/2 cup ketchup

1/8 cup white vinegar

1/4 cup packed dark brown sugar

2 tablespoons diced onion

1 teaspoon yellow mustard

1/2 teaspoon chili powder

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon ground pepper

1/2 cup crumbled cooked bacon

Preheat oven to 350. Pour beans into dish. Dissolve corn starch with water and add to the beans. Add remaining ingredients, besides the bacon. Bake for 90 minutes or until sauce becomes thick, make sure to stir about every 30 minutes.Top with crumbled bacon to serve.
