The slow cooker does all the work for these flavorful baked beans. Season them to fit any regional barbecue spread by choosing a different style of BBQ rub each time you make them.

INGREDIENTS

NOTES

Recipe adapted from the How Sweet It Is blog’s Crockpot Bacon Bourbon Baked Beans recipe.*Replace Smoked Spanish Sweet Paprika with Smoked Spanish Hot Paprika to add even more heat.



DIRECTIONS

Drain and rinse beans and set aside. Slice bacon into strips and cook in a skillet over medium-high heat until crispy. Transfer bacon to a paper towel-lined plate. Drain all but 3 Tbsp. bacon grease from the skillet. Cook onion and garlic in bacon grease over medium heat until soft, 5 to 7 min. Meanwhile, add remaining ingredients except beans to the slow cooker. Whisk everything together then add beans, bacon, and onion-garlic mixture. Stir to combine, cover, and cook on low for 8 hours. After 8 hours, mixture will be soupy; turn the heat off but keep slow cooker covered for 30 min. to 2 hours to thicken beans before serving.
