Baked Beans are one of my specialty sides. I love cooking them up with good barbecue food, or even, you know, since today is Easter, as a side with ham!
This baked bean recipe is all from scratch. Pinto beans baked with a homemade barbecue sauce, then loaded with bacon and some roasted jalapeno for some added flavor and dimension.
My baked bean recipe is smokey, sweet, and has a little heat. Everything I love about making baked beans.
Yout can even make them ahead, then finish them in the oven to get that carmelization of the sugar on top. This is a for sure crowd pleaser!
