Slow Cooker Hawaiian Barbecue Baked Beans simmered in a pineapple infused barbecue bath enlivened with just the right kick of Cajun spices. These beans are a total crowd pleaser and couldn’t be any easier!!
I have it bad for baked beans.
My foodie crush started years and years ago. First, it was Pork and Beans. Although that was more of a love/hate as I was grossed out every time I had to fish out the soggy piece of bacon. I didn’t understand it. Perhaps I never will. But the beans were so good to a seven-year-old dirty blonde, freckle faced girl.
Then it was Busch’s Baked Beans. The perfect texture and sweetness, doctored up with cheese, sour cream and onions.
And now its these Slow Cooker Hawaiian Barbecue Baked Beans perfect just the way they are. I am crushing hard.
These beans are perfectly sweet, perfectly spiced, and perfectly brightened by the addition of pineapple juice. The pineapple juice makes these baked beans but is not overpowering. Rather, it perfectly compliments the sweet and tangy barbecue mixture of ketchup, molasses, brown sugar, and a heaping spoonful of Cajun spices.
Simply dump the beans, Hawaiian barbecue sauce ingredients, garlic and onion into your crockpot and let it simmer away. As the beans cook and soften and drink up all the pineapple, barbecue goodness, they will transform from this…
Beans coated in a thick sweet and spicy Hawaiian barbecue gravy. So easy, so delicious, so perfect for crowds, SO ready for you to curl up with a bowl and fall in love with baked beans all over again.
