Homemade Baked Beans

Home Made Baked Beans:  once you've tried home made baked beans you'll never want to go back to the canned version again.  These beans are so, so good -sweet and a little spicy, worth making from scratch.

A few years ago, we were at ribfest, and my husband ordered ribs that came with a side of baked beans. I didn’t dislike baked beans, but they weren’t on my fav. list either. Until, I tried homemade ones. They were sweet and spicy and awesome. Since ribfest is only once a year, it seemed like a good idea to try and make some at home. I’ve made these several times, and tweaked them a little. I like them sweet, but if you don’t like them too sweet, reduce the sugar. I also like a little spice so there’s a tsp of chili flakes in these, but you can adjust it up or down depending on your taste. They’d be great with fresh hot peppers in them too.

If you’re a fan of baked beans and never tried a homemade version you are going to love these -and they’re really easy, love slow cooker recipes. We’ve made these a few times to go with ribs, and this week I made them for fajita night. It got me thinking that they’d be an awesome make ahead for a camping trip, just make them at home and re-heat on the camp stove.
