Root Beer Baked Beans

Root Beer Baked Beans

By Chef Lippe

I know this is another one of those recipes that if they know what the ingredients are they will say NO WAY! But these are the best baked beans and you REALLY can’t taste the rootbeer. They have a flavor that is different and addictive.


4 slices bacon cut into small pieces

1 large onion, chopped

3 garlic cloves, minced

4 (15 ounce) cans white kidney beans (any bean will work) rinsed and drained

1 ½ cups Root Beer

3 Tablespoons molasses

2 Tablespoons tomato paste

2 Tablespoons Dijon mustard

1 ½ Teaspoons chili powder

1 Teaspoon salt

1 Teaspoon pepper

Cook bacon in a pan over medium heat until crisp. Using slotted spoon, to remove bacon to paper towels to drain. Add onions to pan and cook until they begin to brown, about 8 minutes. Add garlic. Stir for about 1 minute. Add beans, root beer, molasses, tomato paste, mustard and seasonings, mix. Stir in bacon. Transfer to a 9 x 13 pan, bake uncovered until liquid thickens, about 30 minutes.
