Certainly! Here’s a simple and delicious recipe for 1-pot BBQ Baked Beans:


  • Two cans (15 oz each) of your favorite beans (kidney beans, navy beans, or pinto beans), drained and rinsed
  • One can (15 oz) black beans, drained and rinsed
  • One medium onion, finely chopped
  • One bell pepper, diced
  • Three cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 cup tomato sauce
  • 1/2 cup barbecue sauce
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup or brown sugar
  • Two tablespoons of Dijon mustard
  • One tablespoon of apple cider vinegar
  • One teaspoon of smoked paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder (adjust to taste)
  • Salt and black pepper to taste
  • Optional: 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro or parsley for garnish


Prepare Vegetables:

In a large pot or Dutch oven, sauté the chopped onion and bell pepper over medium heat until softened, about 5 minutes.

Add Garlic:

Add minced garlic to the pot and sauté for an additional 1-2 minutes until fragrant.

Combine Ingredients:

Add the drained and rinsed beans, tomato sauce, barbecue sauce, maple syrup (or brown sugar), Dijon mustard, apple cider vinegar, smoked paprika, and chili powder to the pot. Stir to combine all the ingredients.

Season and Simmer:

Season the mixture with salt and black pepper to taste. Stir well and bring the mixture to a simmer.

Simmer and Bake:

Reduce the heat to low, cover the pot, and let the baked beans simmer for about 30 minutes, stirring occasionally. If the mixture becomes too thick, you can add a bit of water to reach your desired consistency.

Optional Oven Baking:

If you want a thicker and more caramelized consistency, you can transfer the pot to a preheated oven at 350°F (175°C) for an additional 15-20 minutes, uncovered.

Garnish and Serve:

Garnish the 1-pot BBQ Baked Beans with chopped fresh cilantro or parsley if desired.

Serve warm as a side dish at your next barbecue or family gathering.
