Hot Pepper Baked Beans Recipe

Cook Time:  60 minutes

Difficulty:  Easy

The perfect side dish for any barbeque!


  • 7 pieces bacon, cut into pieces
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1 green or red bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 can (14 - 15 oz. ) black beans
  • 1 can (14 - 15 oz.) Great Northern or Navy Beans
  • 2 cans (14 - 15 oz.) chili beans
  • 1 jar Terrapin Ridge Hot Pepper Bacon Jam


In a large skillet, cook bacon over medium high heat until crispy.  Remove bacon and add chopped onion and bell pepper to hot bacon grease.  Saute for 5 - 7 minutes until softened. Add beans and jam.

Stir until well combined and simmer on low heat for 30 - 45 minutes.  Stir occasionally.  This can be transferred to a crockpot and kept on low until ready to serve.   Enjoy!

*Note- after sauteing the vegetables, you can throw all the ingredients into a crockpot and cook on low for 6 hours, or high for 4 hours.

Serves 10 - 12 as a side dish
