Perfect Blend Sweet and Spicy Home Style Baked Beans

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Helping Hands

I love the luscious combo of sweet and spicy in these home style baked beans. These are perfect for those folks who prefer just a dash of spiciness and/or just a dash of sweetness to their beans, with neither flavor overpowering the other. These are quick, and very easy to make, utilizing canned beans - yet, they taste slaved over and homemade. Enjoy!

I was in the mood to try a new bean recipe and wanted something with jalapeno, decided to give this one a try and it was very good. Much different flavor because I had never tried ranch style beans before. Really good combo. I made this recipe as is except that I sauteed the green pepper and onion for a few minutes before mixing. Baked for the 1 hour and our guests all like this recipe that went with our Santa Maria BBQ. I will make this one again, thanks for sharing.
