Stay cool in the kitchen this summer with these slow cooked baked beans. They are sweet, spicy and super easy to make.
Some people put their slow cookers away for the summer but not me, I use mine all year long. It’s a great way to prep a meal early in the day and forget about it until it’s time to eat. One of our favorite summer slow cooked dishes is baked beans. The beans cook nice and slow allowing the flavors to do their thing while they cook, and the kitchen stays nice and cool without the oven on.
This recipe is made with simple and wholesome ingredients and can be put together in no time. Serve these slow cooked beans as a main dish with a side salad or serve them with your favorite burger. Either way you have a super simple dinner so you can enjoy your summer!
Baked beans are traditionally made with navy beans, but you can use just about any kind of bean you want. I like a variety of beans which makes the texture a little more interesting. This is a perfect dish to serve at your next barbecue with your favorite burger. You can use dried beans that have been soaked and cooked or organic canned beans.
