My husband does not like baked beans but can't get enough of these. They are loaded with a variety of meats and get a little bit of sweetness from molasses and brown sugar. If you don't have a slow cooker, you can bake them in the oven until heated through.

Stir in the baked beans, bacon, ham, onion, chili powder, ketchup, brown sugar and molasses. If it seems thick, stir in the water. Cover and cook on High for 3 hours or cook for 6 to 8 hours on Low.
  2. All done! Now take a photo, rate it, and share your accomplishments!

AS A BAKED BEANAHOLIC, I CAN SAY THESE WERE ABSOLUTELY DELICIOUS! I FOLLOWED THE RECIPE TO THE T [CAN'T UNDERSTAND CHANGING A RECIPE UNTIL YOU'VE TRIED IT]& IT WAS EASY, DELICIOUS, & MAKES A LOT. IT IS INDEED A MEAL IN ITSELF, & A SLICE OF FRESH BREAD/BUTTER MAKES IT TRUE COMFORT FOOD! THANKS FOR A TRUE KEEPER!

LOVED this recipe!! I did make one substitution and that was for the ham (didn't have). I used finely chopped bbq pork. For the ground beef, I had some leftover hot dog sauce (Grandpa' Classic Coney Dog Sauce recipe) that I used. I've made many baked beans recipes and my guests and I really liked the flavors this dish had. It's almost a meal by itself. I had always cooked my beans in the oven for at least an hour prior to this recipe. I really liked the ease of putting all the ingredients into the crockpot and letting cook on high for 2 hours. Next time, I will add the water as needed after stirring occasionally for a thicker sauce. Can't wait to make these again for our next big BBQ bash!

Very disappointing. I followed the recipe exactly and it still tasted like beans right out of the can---with a lot of meat added. Very time consuming and not at all worth the effort.
