Category: Easy Side Dishes


1 can pinto beans (or red)
6 ounces coca-cola
1/2 cup diced onion
1/4 cup diced green pepper
1/4 cup brown sugar
2 tbsp mustard
6-8 strips bacon

How to Prepare:

In heavy skillet, saute 2 strips of bacon with the onion and green pepper until the onion is golden brown. Stir in all of the other ingredients except the remaining bacon. Bring to a low boil. Pour into a greased casserole dish. Place the remaining bacon across the beans. Bake at 325 degrees for 45 to 50 minutes.

i'm sure you could substitute diet coke and canadian bacon. i don't know if sf/brown sugar would be good or not. what do ya'll think?

Just for an experiment, I would probably omit the bacon and use SF maple syrup in place of the brown sugar. It will probably taste different, but might still be good.

that sounds like a good idea, kathy.

I would also use pork 'n beans, but for Core would use vegetarian baked beans. They used to be checked Core but I don't know if they're on the corrections list.

vegetarian baked beans are no longer core. bummer! right?

I always meant to try these from Barbos site but I'd make them sweeter. Let me know if you make them and they are good.

This is what I have saved from my Core Yahoo Group:

EASY COLA BAKED BEANS - about 6 servings

2 TBS spicy brown mustard
1 TBS cider vinegar
1//2 tsp salt
1/8 tsp pepper
1 1/2 cups diet cola

Turn into a greased 8" x 8" pan.
Bake at 375F until beans are hot and bubbly, about 1 hour.
