    These are really good 'baked beans'. Especially for those who don't like their beans sweet.

      i wish i could rate this higher, but this recipe didn't work for us. i made it in the crockpot as suggested after preparing the beans, sliced 3 onions and added the ingredients, cooked this on low for 10 hrs. the onions would have been better chopped, they overwhelmed the dish and the flavor was, in general, bland. some chilis or other spices would have added missing flavor.

      I didn't really care for these, but they are getting three stars because my hubby liked them. I had them in the oven for only two hours and they came out dry. I thought the amount of onion was fine, but the whole dish needed more flavor. I might play with this recipe more, it has potential!

      These beans were just okay for hubby and I. We ate what was on our plates, but didn't reach for seconds... they had WAY too much onion for our tastes. I made these as directed (except I subbed some yellow, red & orange sweet peppers for the green pepper) using the crock pot method. Bacon would really make these beans taste better (but I think bacon makes everything taste better - go figure). I'm glad that I tried these beans, even if I won't be making them again. Made for ZWT5 for the Groovy GastroGnomes.
