To me, baked beans are an integral part of any cookout. This recipe gives canned baked beans a zing! The acid from the lime juice pairs nicely with the fatty richness of the beans and the spice of the chipotle in adobo. It’s the perfect pairing for your favorite BBQ proteins!



  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. In a saute pan over medium heat, cook the bacon until crispy, about 4 minutes. Remove the bacon with a slotted spoon to a paper towel-lined plate. Add the onions and garlic to the pan with the bacon grease and cook until the onions are translucent, about 5 minutes. Remove from the heat.
  3. In a large bowl, combine the baked beans, onion-garlic mixture, bacon, ketchup, honey, lime juice, adobo sauce, salt and pepper. Mix thoroughly to combine. Transfer to a 2-quart baking dish. Cover with foil and bake for 30 minutes. Uncover and bake until slightly thickened, about another 10 minutes. Remove from the oven and top with the fried onions. Serve.
