"I saw a similar recipe online a while back and have been amending it to make it my own. Everyone always loves these beans, and they are a sweet, filling, and yummy addition to a plate of potato salad and the smokey BBQ we all love!" — aleasa

dry mesquite flavored seasoning mix
2 (28 ounce) cans
baked beans (such as Bush's Original®)
dry mustard powder
cayenne pepper, or to taste
Very good though I did reduce the sugar to 1/4 cup. Thanks so much for sharing.
Would love to try this recipe - but alas I live in Canada.....No Bush Beans!!!!!! We have tried them before, and Love them!! I know they would be delicious in this recipe - get the company on the ball, andget them into Canada!!
Super delicious baked beans! I only used 2 T molasses hence the 1 star ding.
You can find Bush's at Costco in Canada as well. Thanks for posting a fabulous side aleasa!
Yes we have bush beans now. They are at Walmart and they are really good.
You can use any unseasoned pork and beans such as Van Camps etc.
Delicious beans. I used only 1/2 cup of brown sugar because Bush's are so sweet anyway. Really easy to make and the oven doesn't have to be on for an hour. I thought the meat might be too much, but these were scarfed up at a 4th of July picnic, and there were plenty of burgers. ;-}.
Having lived in Georgia for over four years now, I haven't been able to find a baked beans recipe I was happy with. My family loves the dark colored baked beans at BBQ restaurants down here, but I have been unable to find a similar recipe.. until today. I had a 28 ounce can of Bush's Boston flavored beans, so I adjusted the seasoning since the beans already had some flavoring in it. I didn't have any mesquite seasoning, so we just went without it and I didn't have any dried mustard, so I just put a squirt of regular yellow mustard. These beans are yummy! The BBQ sauce (I used Sweet Baby Ray's) made the beans a darker color and gave it a really good flavor. Thanks for sharing this recipe Aleasa. I printed it and will definitely be making them again. :)
Followed this recipe one time about 5 years ago for a covered dish dinner at my office. From that point on I have never again been given the option to bring what I wanted but insisted that I bring the beans regardless to the occasion. These beans ROCK !!!!!
