Bar-B-Q Baked Beans

Recipe by  

"I have been serving this recipe to my extended family every Christmas, Thanksgiving and Easter for over 20 years. It is always a big hit but I have never told the children that there are lima beans in it! This is especially good with a baked ham or spareribs, and is easily doubled. Enjoy!"

This recipe has great flavor - the chili sauce really perks it up. Sadly, though, it was a bit too dry. I also enjoy the various beans, each having a different consistancy, even the lima beans were good (and I don't eat limas). Overall, it was a good change from the usual baked bean recipes. A great way to add legume nutrition to the dinner table.

Good recipe to try - depending on your tastes. The chili sauce made these a bit too "zingy" for us.

I use this recipe all the time when I want a quick side dish. To speed things up I put it in the microwave until nice and hot then put in the oven. Cuts the baking time in 1/2. I don't use as much chili sauce as it says and I still get a nice spicy baked bean dish. Last time I added some ham and a little liquid smoke. YUM!

I love this recipe. Not only is it quick & easy, but the chili sauce gives the beans a great taste. They are not to spicy nor are they too sweet. Just perfect. One thing I do differently, is I dice the bacon & fry it first, then mix it into the beans. Excellent!

I have served this dish repeatedly at cattle events and have gotten rave reviews! These are what beans are meant to be.

I am personally not too fond of baked beans but I decided to make these anyway. They turned out okay for me but my husband and kids loved them. There weren't any left overs at all. Any time I make something with beans in it and the kids and hubby eat it all, it gets five stars from me. It was very simple to make and will definitely make again soon. Thanks

At first, I was going to give it a 4 because I baked mine for less time than the recipe says, but it came out dry. I added liquid (water) and stirred it. The taste, however, is delicious and deserves a 5. I've made this kind of beans many times and have never thought to add chili sauce. Knowing to bake for less time than it says, though, is really a plus so I'm rating it a 5!

This is now my standard and oft-requested bake bean recipe. I tend to play with it a bit. I rarely keep chili sauce in the house so I use ketchup and a spoonful of relish instead. I usually add some BBQ sauce if I have some, as well as some minced onion. The bacon is what makes it really great. I usually cook some ahead of time which I crumble and toss in. Oh and I always make this in the crockpot!
