Homemade smoky chipotle baked beans are slightly sweet and a little bit smoky. They are a quick and easy side dish, perfect for your next summer party.
This post is sponsored in conjunction with #BBQWeek. I received product samples from sponsors to use in creating #BBQWeek recipes. However, all opinions are mine alone.
Baked beans are a classic side dish for summer barbecues, and there are so many ways to make them; smoky, spicy, sweet, savory or a combination of all. Unfortunately, most recipes n contain a lot of sugary ingredients like ketchup brown sugar or molasses. These beans are not like that at all, thanks to cherry chipotle not ketchup which is made with no added sugar, corn syrup or artificial sweeteners. That’s my kind of sauce!
Smoky Chipotle Baked Beans
These beans are so easy to make, they will be in the oven baking within 15 miniutes. The most time-consuming part of this recipe is sauteeing onions, garlic, and pepper in a little bit of oil, then add the beans and sauce and bake.
Serve these beans with your favorite burgers like this veggie burger or this bison burger if you are a meat lover. Here’s how to make the baked beans…
