Root Beer Apple Baked Beans
Total TimePrep: 20 min. Cook: 45 min.
Added a chopped apple, some cinnamon and nutmeg instead of pie filling. Served bacon crumbled on top of beans. Used a few drops of chipotle Tabasco sauce instead of ancho chilies. Pretty good overall.
What a fun twist on traditional baked beans! I followed the recipe except I used "no sugar added" apple pie filling. I included the ancho chili pepper and smoked cheddar. Next time I'll use less root beer just to make the bean sauce thicker; the flavor the soda gave the beans was delicious!
These beans were good, something different. I chopped up the apple slices, used only 3/4 cup root beer and only 1/2 cup shredded cheese. I made these beans yesterday when friends stopped by and everyone liked them so much, I plan to make a double batch for a big party I'm having Fourth of July weekend.
Really sweet! Too much for my taste.
