Best in the West Baked Beans

READY IN: 1hr 30mins
Recipe by Bobbie

I think I clipped this recipe out of the newspaper years ago. It is always a huge hit at picnics, barbecues and get togethers. It's a nice change from the more traditional baked beans. I can't even begin to guess how many times I have handed out the recipe.

I have been so lucky to have eaten this exact recipe for over 13 years and it only gets better each time! It is VERY easy to make and is ALWAYS a hit. I don't do much cooking but I will do this and take the credit for it. :-) Now if my mother in law would make me a recipe book- I just might start cooking regularly. :D

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Brown beef, bacon and onion in large skillet. Drain.
  2. Combine all ingredients except beans, mix well.
  3. Add beans and stir gently.
  4. Bake one hour in a 325 to 350 oven (or until hot a bubbly).
  5. This recipe can easily be cut in half since it makes a rather large batch. I only use half the bacon. If you would like, you could add some more beef if cutting back on the bacon.
