Dr. Pepper Baked Beans

I found this recipe somewhere on the internet last year and have been tweaking it ever since. It's great for bringing along to a picnic. So, in honor of Tasty Tuesday, here's my version of Dr. Pepper Baked Beans:

2 cans (11 oz) pork and beans, UNDRAINED
1 can (14 oz) cannellini (white kidney) beans, DRAINED AND RINSED
1 can (14 oz) pink beans, DRAINED AND RINSED
1 can (14 oz) petite diced tomatoes, UNDRAINED
6 ounces Dr. Pepper
1 cup brown sugar
1/4 tsp cloves
1 cup EACH onion, bell pepper and celery, chopped fine

Mix all of this in a 3-qt or larger casserole dish. Bake, covered, at 350 for 45 minutes.

I like to make this in my 4-qt Nesco roaster and bake at 300 for the first half hour, then turn down to 200 until the rest of the meal is ready to serve.

Visit Many Little Bessings for the rest of the Tasty Tuesday participants! AND there's a contest--so don't miss it! Thanks, Angie, for hosting!


  1. Sounds like a wonderful dish to take to a potluck!

  2. I have to admit, I would never have thought to add Dr. Pepper to beans. LOL Isn't it amazing how crazy some recipes are, but then they are so darn good!

  3. I forwarded this to Fr. Daren at Servant and Steward who is currently in a battle of wits with Thom at Ad Dominum over what is better - Dr. Pepper or Mountain Dew.
