Slow Cooker Land Your Man Baked Beans is a hearty baked bean recipe with ground beef, bell pepper and a touch of brown sugar.
I found this recipe over at Just a Pinch recipes and had to try it out in my slow cooker. Such a cute story about this recipe over at Just a Pinch. I don’t need a man or ever want to land a new one, even so these beans are sure worth trying. Another funny recipe name that’s similar is blueberry boy bait, that looks like a good recipe too.
Pretty simple ingredients go into these beans. Basically the recipe is doctoring up canned baked beans, which is fine to me because I love the texture and flavor of canned baked beans but they need a few things added to make them great. Below is what the recipe looks like before cooking:
And here is after:
I’m sure I will get a few remarks on social media about why I would cook canned beans even longer. As you can see in the 2 above photos the beans look thicker and have so much flavor after cooking together with the other ingredients. They still have great texture and held up their shape after 7 hours of cooking.
The hot sauce is optional, I used 1 tablespoon of our favorite hot sauce Tapatio and it made these beans have quite the kick, which my husband and I don’t mind. Leave out the hot sauce and make sure to buy mild taco seasoning if you don’t like spicy foods.
This meal can be served as a side dish or is hearty enough to be a main dish with a side of cornbread.
Have a great week. I’m excited to share more summer recipes like this one and will be sharing those in the coming up months! I hope you have a great week.
