These were wonderful! The second time I made them, I did them in a crockpot and left them on low all day and removed the cover about half an hour before serving so they thickened up.

We didn't care for these at all. The ketchup is so overpowering & the texture of the various beans was just unappealing. I'm sorry:(

This was a smash at my bar-b-que birthday party Sunday! I made the following changes: used 1 can butter beans instead of the garbonzos, decreased the molasses to two tablespoons and increased the brown sugar to 2/3 cup, used about two heaping tablespoons of BBQ sauce instead of the ketchup, and did not drain the beans. I just did a quick saute of the pepper bacon. I mixed everything in the crockpot and cooked 6 hours low, last two hours high (lid removed) to thicken this and meld the flavors. Thanks previous reviewers, and thanks Kelly!

I used to have a great recipe for baked beans, but somehow I lost it many years ago... I've tried lots of recipes since then, and this is the closest I've come to that excellent recipe. It has the perfect combination of ketchup, molasses, mustard, brown sugar and onion. I'd cut the amt. of Worchestershire down the next time I made it, though. But it's good, and you can use any combination of beans you like. (I used a can of butter beans.)

I made these baked beans for a family BBQ last weekend and everyone commented about how delicious they were. They really were the best baked beans I've ever had. I cooked them covered for an hour as directed, but then cooked them uncovered for about 10 minutes so they would thicken up and they turned out very well, not too much liquid. My store didn't have canned Great Northern Beans, and I don't care for Garbanzo Beans, so I used two cans of Pinto beans, two cans of Bush's Original Baked Beans, and one can of kidney beans, plus I used a really good, thick Applewood Smoked Bacon which added a great flavor and texture. I loved how simple this was to make! Thanks for the great recipe.

I cooked this up for a party yesterday exactly as given. No changes. It came out perfect. I was asked by many for the recipe. One lady simply hollered "Ouch, them's goooood beans." I doubled the recipe to feed 20. Only about 15 ate and the beans ran out early. I'm not a big baked bean fan, but this I loved. I highly recommend. It WILL be a hit.

This bean recipe is awesome! I live in Vermont, so I add about a half cup of VT Maple syrup, and my husband adds about 1/3 cup of Jack Daniels to the recipe...and it gives them even more zip! Thanks for the recipe!!

As with most bean-based recipes you can sub just about any type of canned bean for any other and that's what I did... used what was on hand, subbing black beans for garbanzos. I served this as part of a end-of-Summer cookout and added 1 lb. of ground beef to it just to make things interesting. ;-) It even ended up in the oven for much longer than I wanted it to. (Do guests ever show up on time?!?) Would definitely make it again as it was a hit at the cookout!
