Default Cola Baked Beans?

Heard someone on another board talking about this, but nobody seems to have the recipe. Anyone here know how to make core "Cola Baked Beans?"

here's what i found at ask.com. i hope it helps you.

coca-cola slow cooked baked beans
Provided by: Kelly Russell



Category: Easy Side Dishes

Ingredients:

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.

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.

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.

Rancher's Beans
cooking spray
1/4 cup onion, chopped
16 ounces kidney beans, canned, light red
16 ounces great northern beans, canned
8 ounces tomato sauce, no salt added
3 tablespoons tomato juice without salt
1 tablespoon yellow mustard
2 tablespoons brown sugar substitute
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/8 teaspoon pepper

Coat a medium saucepan with cooking spray; place over medium high heat until hot. Add onion; saute until tender.

Add kidney beans and remaining ingredients. Cook over medium heat, uncovered, 20 minutes or until slightly thickened. Serves 9.

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

EASY COLA BAKED BEANS - about 6 servings

Drain and rinse 3 cans (16 oz. ea) assorted beans (kidney, black and pinto work well)
Mix with 1/2 cup tomato puree (I used a can of crushed tomatoes and pureed with my hand wand blender)
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.
