Chipotle chiles in adobo sauce add smoky-hot depth to these easy-to-make baked beans.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 350°.

Step 2

Cook bacon in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat until crisp. Remove bacon from pan, reserving 1 tablespoon drippings in pan, and set bacon aside. Add onion to drippings in pan; sauté 3 minutes.

Step 3

Combine bacon, onion, and remaining ingredients except cooking spray in a large bowl; toss well. Spoon the bean mixture into a 13 x 9-inch or 2 1/2-quart baking dish coated with cooking spray. Bake at 350° for 45 minutes.

The adults loved these beans at our 4th of July cookout. They were too spicy for the pre-teens. I will make this again, but cut down on the chipotle chiles by half.

We love these baked beans! I never buy the ready made anymore (Bush). These are the only baked beans I prepare for our cookouts.

I have made these several times for potlucks and 4th of July bbq and everyone loves them. Agree that you can cut back the sugar & bbq sauce to your own liking, as they are a little on the sweet side. Have mixed beans: black, white, pinto, kidney etc, and in a pinch used 2 cans of Bush's bbq baked beans, but it's the chipotle that makes these so special.

My go-to recipe for baked beans. Love the added 'kick' from the peppers. If you don't like spicy, cut back on the adobo.

I couldn't find the chipotle in adobo sauce in London, so used dried chipotle's soaked in some boiling water, everything else was the same........everyone at the BBQ loved the flavour! definite hit and will make again.

I would take this to any pot luck or bbq without hesitation. I served mine with hot dogs for a weeknight meal.

This is a great recipe! I made one batch for an RV campout with about 20 people, there wasn't a bean leftover! I used Stubb's BBQ sauce and a red onion. Delish!
