Really good baked bean recipe, make it for any get together I attend. The honey-chipolte sauce is all you need, and I find that if you drain the premade baked beans and just leave a little sauce on them you can really taste all of the flavors from the homeade sauce better and it is not too sweet.

I definitely would not say that this dish is outstanding...just a good solid recipe. These beans were just a little lack-luster for me. They were very runny and just seemed to be lacking something. I followed the recipe to a T, but I think that I could tweak it to make it better.

These beans are a solid hit! I have requests to make them for any big event. Spicy and sweet where you can adjust each according to the company in attendance. I drain off the liquid from the can of beans and also just make them stove top. Always a hit!

Guess I can't understand why you would use cans of baked beans in a recipe FOR baked beans... I want to make my own for a couple of reasons, mainly to get away from the stuff in the can. So used more molasses, and cans of Great Northern beans. Not bad, but needs some tweaking in terms of the amount of molasses, cumin and chipotle.

This recipe is always a huge hit whenever I make it. Best tip is to drain a bit of the sauce from the veggie baked beans. The longer they cook, the better. And, even better the next day. Love the spice - I always add a bit extra for added flavor.

These had more than just a kick. I followed the recipe exactly and they were much too warm for my husband (who enjoys spicy foods). If I make them again, I would definitely cut back on some of the heat. Otherwise, the flavor seemed really good....just much too hot.

Loved this dish. It turned basic beans from a can into something to talk about. The honey almost creates a crackle shell after cooking and the adobe gives the beans a kick without being too hot. I served this to 30 college boys and they couldn't get enough.

This is a favorite recipe in our family! I make it all summer long. I use Bush's Vegetarian Baked Beans. I drain some of the liquid off of the canned beans (or the recipe will turn out a bit soupy). I use a Dutch oven and do the sauteeing right in the Dutch oven/pot, then add the canned beans. The beans can be cooked up to 2 hours; they just get better the longer they cook.

Rave reviews each time I make them. Perfect amount of heat from the chipotle peppers. I've had friends and family with their own favorite recipes ask for this one.
