What ingredients are needed for slow cooker baked beans?
There are only 6 ingredients that are needed to make baked beans slow cooker recipe. It takes no time to throw this recipe together but everyone loves it!
- Pork and Beans
- Barbecue Sauce
- Brown Sugar
- Jalapeño (remove seeds if you want less heat)
- Diced Onions
- Bacon – of course!
How to make crockpot baked beans with canned beans:
Ok, I promise that this recipe is easy to make since the crock pot does all the work!
First, spray the inside of your crock pot casserole dish with non-stick cooking spray. This will make the dish easier to clean and ensure that beans don’t get stuck to the bottom.
Then in a mixing bowl, combine the pork and beans, the bbq sauce, brown sugar, jalapeños and diced onions. Mix well until all of these ingredients are well combined.
Next chop half the bacon into pieces. I like to cook the bacon slightly in a skillet over medium heat before adding it in. Fold in the chopped bacon into the mixing bowl.
Pour the mixture into the crock pot casserole dish. Then place the whole slices of bacon on the top of the pork and beans in the crockpot.
Next place the lid on top and cook for 2 hours on high or cook on low for 4 hours.
Allow the ingredients in the slow cooker to sit for 15 minutes slightly uncovered and serve. (the longer it sits the thicker the beans get). If you find that the beans are too thick slowly add cups of water until they are consistency that you desire.
