Ranch Beans- Another Potluck Favorite March 5, 2012

Filed under: Uncategorized — lonislens @ 11:05 pm

I first tried these beans when my mother-in-law made them for our rehearsal dinner cookout.  I’ve never seen people go back for seconds of baked beans before, but they definitely did with these!  So of course I asked for the recipe and now I make them.  If you wind up with a lot of leftovers, you can add some canned tomatoes, a hit of several spices, and turn it into next-day chili.

Recipe Courtesy Of: My Mother-in-Law



  •  1 16 oz can black beans – rinsed and drained
  • 1 16-oz. can molasses baked beans
  • 1 16 oz can chili beans in sauce
  • 1 lb. lean ground beef or bison
  • 1 envelope onion soup mix
  • 1 cup catsup
  • 2 Tbs mustard
  • 2 tsp vinegar


1.  Brown ground beef and drain off grease.

2.  In slow cooker, combine all ingredients.  Cover.

3.  Cook on low setting for 3-4 hours.  (I stir occasionally, or else some of the beans adhere themselves to the sides of the crockpot).
