Amazing Kahlua Baked Beans

READY IN: 30mins




  • Sauté onion and bell pepper in a pan sprayed with cooking spray or a little olive or vegetable oil until they begin to soften. (I use a dutch oven but any large sauce pan will do).
  • Stir in tomatoes and tomato sauce (NOTE: if using paste mix with 8 oz water. ALSO, if you are using cherry tomatoes some tomato skin will remain in the finished dish. If you do not care for the skin please use the undrained canned tomato option.).
  • Bring to a boil, cooking until tomatoes break up, stirring often. If you prefer smaller tomato pieces help to break them up using the back of your spoon.
  • Once the tomatoes have cooked down to the size you prefer, reduce the heat to simmer and add brown sugar, Kahlua, maple syrup, Worcestershire sauce, mustard, drained and rinsed beans and salt and pepper to taste.
  • Cover and cook for 10-15 minutes.
  • Uncover and taste. Adjust seasoning if you desire, i.e., more salt or mustard etc --.
  • Leave cover OFF and cook for another 10 minutes or until the beans have reached the desired consistency. Stir occasionally.
  • Serve and enjoy!
