Carla's Best-Ever Baked Beans

Total Time

This is the only way I make my baked beans, and now it's the only way everyone that has ever eaten them makes their baked beans. I can't believe a similar recipe wasn't already published! Everyone loves these, and they are SOOO easy. Intead of a fresh chopped onion and green bell pepper, I use a frozen chopped red, green and yellow bell pepper and onion blend. I couldn't get it to recognize that igredient, so I just wrote 1 pepper and 1 onion... I keep the bell pepper and onion blend in my freezer at all times, and use them in a lot of dishes.

Ingredients Nutrition

  2. Stir in onions and peppers, and cook until soft.
  3. Mix in remaining ingredients.
  4. Pour into baking dish and bake at 300 F for 1 hour.

My friend makes baked beans this way and after trying this, I asked for the recipe. It is very good, a change from the traditional bacon that many baked bean recipes call for. The combination of the sweet with the peppers and onions make this a wonderful side dish. Thank you for sharing.

I got this recipe from Carla several years ago, and it's the only one I make. These baked beans are great. Go ahead and get the frozen veggie mix if you can; it makes this recipe super fast and easy.
