5-Ingredient Cola Baked Beans Recipe: A Sweet Southern Side Dish

Baked beans are a must at cookouts. And especially with some foods, like hamburgersbarbecue and hot dogs. This easy cola baked beans recipe cooks in the slow cooker, so you have time to enjoy your family. The recipe has just five simple ingredients!

Cooking with carbonated cola is nothing new in the south (we even make Dr Pepper jelly!). These simple slow-cooked cola baked beans have a very short shopping list: a big can of baked beans, an onion, bacon, brown sugar and cola. The type of cola you use will affect the flavor of the beans. I prefer using plain ol' Coke for this recipe. 

Serve these baked beans as a side dish with chicken, pork, beef, hamburgers or hotdogs.
