"This is my Aunt Ro's recipe for baked beans. It's closer to chili than baked beans, and it's great for a potluck or BBQ." — Wallyfish

Thank you Aunt Ro!!! These are easy and wonderful, and the best thing is they stand up beautifully to adjustments if you don't happen to have everything or want to add something. I live outside of the city in the mountains, so (especially with fuel costs skyrocketing) I can't just run to a store to pick up extra ingredients. The first time I made these I made them exactly as written ... DELICIOUS! Everyone raved! We invited some friends over for a cookout, and among them were people who had been here the first time I made these, and they asked if I would make them again. This time, however, I used what I had in the cupboard for beans: black beans, pinto beans, red bean and Garbanzo beans. I added some chopped garlic and used chopped saute's Brats instead of the burger, and threw in a chopped jalapeno for good measure. MORE raves!! I made a huge crockpot full, and even had people ask if they could take some home ... but no leftovers to speak of. So feel confident with this recipe and make minor changes if need be - this is a keeper!!
We made this for a party and it was a big hit. The only change we made was to add some pressed garlic. Definitely will make this again.
This is one of our family's favorite recipes for picnics or a supper meal. Doesn't have to go in a slow cooker. If you don't have one, just either simmer on low on top of the stove or place in an oven at 250 temperature. Delicious.
Great served with green salad and cornbread.
I have made this recipe several times now, and it's always been a big hit. The only change I made was using more bacon. Sweet Baby Ray's barbecue sauce was wonderful with this recipe.
This is an awesome recipe! Instead of butter beans I used red beans and added fresh jalepenos. Everyone at our bbq loved it. Thanks for sharing!
I had pulled 3 different baked beans recipes off this site to try for Labor Day. My husband LOVED this recipe. It was super flavorful and came out perfect. I doubled the bacon and used Sweet Baby Ray's and it was by far the best I've had.
Removed butter beans, added extra baked beans. Also added the bacon while it was cooking in the crockpot, but I may use the oven next time. Great recipe, everyone loved it and I'll be making lots for the 4th! :)
Best beans ever!!! I didn't change a thing.
