Hearty Baked Beans

This is an old Taste of Home recipe I've made in the past, and I took them to one of our many family gatherings in the past couple of weeks.  These are great for a carry-in (or potluck--for some reason, it's called a "carry-in" in our neck of the woods! lol) or a large family get-together, because they are tasty and the recipe makes a lot!  You can follow the directions here, or just throw everything in the crockpot and cook for a few hours (well, make sure the meats are cooked before they go in the crockpot!).


  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 2 large onions, chopped
  • 3/4 pound sliced bacon, cooked and crumbled
  • 4 cans (15 ounces each) pork and beans
  • 1 bottle (18 ounces) honey barbecue sauce
  • 1 can (16 ounces) kidney beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 can (15-1/4 ounces) lima beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 can (15 ounces) black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 3 tablespoons cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon Liquid Smoke, optional
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper


  • In a large skillet, cook beef and onions over medium heat until meat is no longer pink; drain. Transfer to a 5-qt. Dutch oven. Stir in the remaining ingredients.
  • Cover and bake at 350° for 1 hour or until heated through. Yield: 18 servings.
