One of the most treasured recipes in my recipe box is my grandmother’s baked bean recipe.  Actually, the recipe came from her grandmother and has been passed down in the family for years.

I can’t remember a cookout when she didn’t make her signature baked beans.  They were (and still are) a cookout staple for us.

They’re sweet, they’re smoky, they’re loaded with flavor and covered in bacon.  Everyone loves them and they always get devoured.  It’s one of those recipes that everyone asks for whenever I make it.

A few weeks ago, my son was on a sleepover at a friend’s house.  While he was there, he went to a cookout at his friend’s grandparent’s house.

One of the things he ate were spicy baked beans.  He came home and sheepishly told me these beans were BETTER than mine!  *gasp*

It was so cute…I think he was embarrassed to tell me that.

So, as any good mom would do, I set out to try to make a spicy version of my grandmother’s baked beans.

The result was perfect!  Sweet, smoky and a little spicy.  Perfect for your next cookout or game day party.

The recipe started with Bush’s Great Northern Beans.  I love the quality and texture of Bush’s beans.
