Spicy Barbequed Beans!

These barbeque beans are very different than your run of the mill baked beans.  They are less sweet than baked beans and a lot spicier.   They are also very meaty and filling and men seem to really like them, probably for that reason.  

 They are the perfect side for any type of barbecue meat and you will need some of your barbecue meat for the beans, so coordinate making these when you barbecue.  These beans are perfect with the Slow Cooker Pulled Pork in Coca Cola Barbeque Sauce.  You will need about 2 cups of the pork chopped for the beans.  You can also used chopped beef brisket.  They are also good served over Cornbread Hoecakes.   

 Here's what  you will need to make these beans:


1 28 oz. can Busch Homestyle Baked Beans (do not drain)
2 cans Ranch Beans (do not drain)
2 cups chopped barbequed pork or beef (I like to use the end pieces)
1 cup chopped onion (I used Vidalia, but any sweet onion will do)
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 cup of your favorite barbeque sauce
1/2 cup ketchup
1 cup Coca Cola (Diet or Regular will work)
1 tsp. yellow mustard
1 tsp. chili powder
2 Tbs. Worcestershire sauce
1/3 cup pickled jalapeno peppers, chopped
3 or 4 dashes of Tabasco sauce (optional, leave this out if you don't like too much heat)

Spray a 2 quart casserole dish with nonstick cooking spray.  Pour the beans, undrained, and all of the other ingredients except the meat in the dish and mix together.

 Add the pulled pork or brisket and mix in.

These are the Ranch beans that I use.  They are in a sauce that really gives these beans a good flavor.  They can be a little hard to find here and may not be available in your area.  If you can't find them, you can substitute 2 cans of chili beans in sauce.

Place the casserole dish in a preheated 350 degree oven for 45 minutes.  Give the beans a stir about half way through the cooking time.


  1. These look wonderful! I've got a husband, 2 boys (actually grown men) and a son-in-law who will love them. Thanks, I'll be making these next weekend...I'm so glad you used ranch style beans as we can get them here and my husband just loves them - with fried potatoes. :)

    1. Your guys will love them. I love those Ranch beans, but they are hard to find here. Kroger has finally started carrying them now and I hope they keep them. Thanks for your comment!

  2. OH MY GOODNESS!!! These sound so good and I will be making them next time I BBQ !!!!!

  3. I can't use the jalapeno peppers but can use tabasco sauce! this sounds wonderful!

  4. I wonder if these would be just as good in the crockpot.

  5. This recipe sounds yummy! I live in North Florida, and don't recall ever seeing the Ranch Beans anywhere. If I substituted the chili beans, I would use Bush's Chili Beans. They come in mild, medium and hot. I suppose I could use one can of mild + one can of either medium or hot. What would you suggest?

    1. I think that would be good too. I have had both.
