Hi there everyone! Today, I am sharing the Best baked beans ever!!!
Can you hear me yelling that at you? Seriously, I am. I can’t help it, I get excited over food sometimes.
This baked bean recipe you will want to make and bring to your 4th of July party.
Or any party for that matter that you have coming up or in the future. Be sure to save this recipe.
This is for bean lovers only.
While on our last visit home to Buffalo my Mom gave Mike an early Birthday present. She found a neat cookbook called the Taste of Buffalo.
If I have any Buffalonians reading, you know what this is.
Buffalo is not only known for cold, snow and the Buffalo Bills losing 4 superbowls…going 4 consecutive times…
Buffalo also has the reputation for the best foodie places in the Nation.
Afterall, what else can you do in a blizzard?..
you can always eat!
This bean recipe I am sharing today is not your average baked beans recipe.
I told Mike after he made them, they were the best I ever had.
Really, no joke.
Mike said they were a bit tedious, but totally worth the few extra steps. Have I mentioned I love when my husband cooks?
ahhh, why of course I do. What wife wouldn’t?
Well, don’t answer that, your husband may not be very good in the kitchen.
Served up with some dogs or burgers and you are the hit of the party!
Don’t forget to check out my recipe archives while you are here visiting. I have lots of yummy party appetizers and more. All easy too.
How about the recipe now…
Lee's Ranch Beans
- 2 cans of Campbell's pork and beans undrained.
- 1 can of butter beans
- 1 can of Kidney beans
- 1 lb ground chuck
- 1 lb of bacon
- 2 chopped onions
- 1 c of orange yellow or red pepper
- 2 cans of tomato soup undiluted
- 1 cup of brown sugar
- All cans used are 16 oz.
- Chop and saute onions and pepper in a little olive oil. Brown and drain the meat. Cut bacon in large pieces, fry and drain. Combine all the above ingredients. Bake uncovered at 350 degrees for 1 hour. These are fantastic for a party. Apparently a real crowd pleaser and always asked for next time.
I have made this recipe for years now – even folks who don’t care for baked beans rave about them! I am convinced it’s the butter beans and ground beef that add that pizzazz. Have a wonderful fourth, Debbie! Jane
These sound so good! Can I ask what size cans you used? Thanks!
Adding it now..hubs said 15 oz. but I believe the cans are 16 oz.lol
Wow they certainly sounds yummy I will definitely have to make them thanks Deb
I love baked beans, and these do sound amazing! Hmmm, I may have to move to Buffalo, if they have such good foodie places!
that sounds amazing!!!!!!
I’ll have to try this one! My family says I bake the best bake beans ever so we shall try this one! LOL!
Hugs and blessings, Cindy
They look great, Debbie! I’m intrigued by the cookbook, too. Glad you shared the recipe.

Oh, those do look good! Ground beef and the tomato soup are very different from anything I’ve ever seen before. May have to try this on Friday!
Yum! My husband requested baked beans for the 4th and yours look really good! I’m going to try and make mine from dried beans in the crock pot. Maybe I should suggest that he cooks them? 🙂
Yes you should Heather, get him in the kitchen!!
I put conecuh sausage in mine as well ,I use Bush baked beans nothing compares. whenever we’re invited to someone’s shindig I get request for my bakedbeans!!
Those sound wonderful too!
Do you drain the kidney and butter beans? Thanks! And yep, I’m from just outside of Buffalo!
yes, drained the kidney and butter beans, not the pork and beans. Enjoy!
Can you make this in a Crockpot?
Not sure, never tried. That is not how the recipe was in that cookbook.
