You can optionally top with parsley and extra jalapeno, if desired. The green toppings really make the beans pop!


Homemade Barbecue Sauce Recipe

Barbecue Sauce Ingredients: 

  • 1 cup ketchup
  • 1 ts brown sugar
  • 1 tsp worcestershire sauce
  • ½ tsp mustard
  • 1 tsp honey
  • 1 tsp apple cider vinegar
  • ½ – 1 tsp black pepper
  • ½ tsp garlic

Making the barbecue sauce is a cinch! Just blend everything together until a smooth consistency. It’s best to set your barbecue sauce aside for a day to allow the flavors to really combine before using.

We just use an empty ketchup bottle for our homemade barbecue sauce. Be sure you write on the cap so no one accidentally adds barbecue when they were hoping for ketchup.

Watch us make this yummy recipe in a quick 1-minute video demonstrating the steps!

    I love a great BBQ Bean recipe and the fact that it's made in the Crock Pot gives it extra bonus points with me. I've never made my own BBQ sauce before so that sounds like fun.

    It has been so incredibly, uncomfortably warm this week. There's no way I'm turning on my oven or even stove. But that doesn't mean I don't want yummy food. Crockpot to the rescue! Those baked beans sound awesome.
