Tasty Tuesday & 202 Followers!!

Hey everybody! Hope y'all had a great Tuesday. Mine was good. Nothing exciting, but not as long or as frustrating as Monday was for me! Whew! I thought Monday would never end!! I am so psyched that I am now at 202 followers!! There will definitely be a giveaway in the near future, just as soon as I figure out what to give away!

For today's Tasty Tuesday, I'm sharing a tried and true recipe for baked beans. Now this recipe is a snap to throw together, but it does take a while to cook. But trust me, it is soooo worth it!! These are some of the best baked beans I've ever tasted. I cook mine in a pottery style bean pot like you see in the picture, but you can do it in a regular pot as long as you have a lid that fits the pot.

Rocky Mountain Baked Beans

2 cans pork and beans (1 lb 13 oz size)
1-2 medium sized onions, cut into big chunks and seperated
1-2 large sized green peppers, cut into big chunks
2 teaspoons worcestershire sauce

Stir all the above ingredients together and then add:

1 cup ketchup
1 cup brown sugar

Combine all ingredients and pour into your pot. Bake, covered, at 325 degrees for 3 hours, stirring twice. Uncover the last
30 minutes.

I don't usually like recipes that take this long to cook, but like I said, these are fantastic and well worth the time it takes to make them. I usually make these on the weekend and they can be made the day before you need them and then reheated before serving. They are great for cookouts!

Well, that's it for me. I've got to get off here and come up with something awesome to give away to show all my followers just how much y'all mean to me!

Until next time. . .

  4. We LOVE baked beans!! When I do them I have the beans, chopped onion, fried bacon and a bottle of Hickery BBQ sauce in the crock pot. It smell amazing!!

  5. The beans sound good and are very similar to a recipe I do in the crock pot. They do take a long time but well worth it!

    *laughing at Carmen* She's so cute!
