One of my favorite things about BBQ is the BBQ beans, or “pork n beans” as they are sometimes known. Love them. My mom always made these sweet and spicy beans when I was growing up and they are still #1 in my book! My husband wanted to grill some ribs this weekend, so what better side dish than beans? It’s the easiest recipe but it’s so good…
Sweet and Spicy BBQ Beans
1/4 lb. bacon, cut into small pieces
1 onion, chopped
1 lb. pork n beans (I like the Showboat brand)
1/2 cup packed dark brown sugar
1/4-1/2 tsp cayenne (use 1/4 if small children will be eating it)
Fry bacon until almost crisp, then add the onions. Cook until the onions are soft then add the beans, sugar and cayenne. Allow to simmer a little while before serving.
