One Pot Wicked Baked Beans

Print Recipe
These One Pot Wicked Baked Beans are the best for bringing to a cookout. Smoky bacon, spicy jalapeños are contrasted with sweet brown sugar and crushed pineapple. One pot will easily feed 16 but it can easily be cut in half to feed smaller gatherings.

  • 8 slices thick-cut applewood smoked bacon diced into 1-inch pieces
  • 1/2 large red onion diced (about 1-1/2 cups)
  • 1 small red bell pepper diced small (about 1 cup)
  • 2 to 3 jalapeños diced (remove seeds and ribs if you want less heat)
  • 55 ounces baked beans
  • 1 (8 ounce) can crushed pineapple drained
  • 1 cup dark brown sugar
  • 1 cup ketchup store-bought or [homemade]
  • 3 tablespoons [Worcestershire sauce]
  • 1/2 tablespoon dry mustard


  • Preheat your oven to 350°.
  • In a 4 quart deep-sided pan or dutch oven, add bacon and heat on medium. Stir and saute until just starting to brown and fat has been released. About 8-10 minutes.
  • Add in the diced onion, red pepper and jalapeños. Stir and sautee for 8 to 10 minutes or until the vegetables are tender.
  • Add in beans, pineapple, brown sugar, ketchup, worcestershire and dry mustard. Stir to combine.

  • Let sit for 10 to 15 minutes before serving. The beans will thicken as they cool.
