Here in Australia black beans in a can don't exist. So, I had to soak mine and cook them (they are a bit hard to find as they aren't popular - we are more influenced my Asian cooking). I added a bacon bone, a green capsicum (pepper) and extra bbq sauce (I left out the sugar - I'm thought it would make it too sweet). I cooked mine in the oven (nice and slow for a couple of hours). I agree that a bit of hot sauce would be great. I served it with rice and can I say it is tasty but more filling than I thought. Thanks for the recipe, the leftovers are going into a pot of chili

I halved the recipe and really enjoyed this dish! I used veggie chorizo style sausage. Lots of flavor! Thanks Cookgirl!

I didn't like this quite so sweet. I added a couple of dashes of tabasco sauce. I might add a can of pinto beans to the next batch. I served it over corn bread.

I followed this recipe exactly but used 2 cups chopped cooked chicken instead of ham. I served it over brown rice. It was a huge hit with my family! This is going right into my Crockpot recipe cookbook - thank you!

I think this was very sweet for my taste but we enjoyed it a lot. I didn't have pineapple on hand and used fresh sliced red peppers in place of the pineapple. I did use spicy honey BBQ sauce, that may have attributed to the substantial sweetness.

This was easy. I mixed everything together the night before and threw it in the crock pot around 1:00. Served it over rice.

This is a Caribbean baked bean recipe, basically. I loved it. Easy and delicious. I added 1 Tb. of golden rum to the mixture at the beginning. My mixture came out a little soupy, more than I would get from 1 Tb. of rum. I guess I was supposed to drain the pineapple? Anyway, I just slightly thickened with a little cornstarch slurry. I added several shakes of cayenne pepper to my serving. I'm sure I'll be making this again.

I went home at lunch, threw this in the crockpot and when I got home, the whole house smelled wonderful! Super easy and good too! I think next time I'll leave out the ham and use 2 cans of pineapple (I really love pineapple), but this was just great! I love the barbeque sauce with the black beans. I didn't need to add any water at the end.

Pretty darn good, Cookgirl! I love black beans, and this was a different and tasty way to eat them. I didn't use reduced-sodium beans and didn't have a can of crushed pineapple on hand, but I did have pineapple so I just crushed it a bit myself. :) I used regular ham and added a little extra, since I am trying to use up the last of the Easter ham. Simple and satisfying--thanks for posting!
