Apple pie baked beans! Minimal ingredients, maximum flavor!

Apple pie baked beans put a bit of a twist on traditional baked beans and truthfully, it’s a match made in BBQ-side heaven! And it’s super easy too!

These apple pie baked beans have only 4 ingredients and hardly any prep. You can pop them in an oven or on your smoker or grill while other things are poppin’. Too easy not to try it.

If you really want to jazz it up, you can add:

  • chopped bell pepper
  • chopped onion
  • jalapeno slices
  • bacon on top
  • minced garlic
  • crushed seeds, like cumin or mustard

I haven’t tried this yet, but I’m thinking cherry pie filling or peach pie filling would be absolutely delicious too… If you try that out, let me know!

Course Side Dish
Cuisine BBQ

Ingredients

  • 16 ounce no sugar added apple pie filling
  • 55 ounce can Bush's original baked beans or Showboat
  • ½ cup favorite BBQ sauce
  • 2 tablespoons favorite BBQ rub/seasoning plus extra for topping

Instructions

  1. Heat your oven, grill or smoker to about 325°.

  2. Empty the pie filling in an aluminum pan OR 13×9 baking dish, plus 2 tablespoons of the BBQ seasoning and BBQ sauce.

    Very gently, using an immersion blender, blend up the apples but not entirely. You don't want apple puree, you just want to loosen it a little bit. If you don't have an immersion blender, place into a food processor or blender and pulse for a few seconds.

  3. Add the canned baked beans and any other jazzy additions, if you're using them, as listed in the notes. Stir to combine.

  4. Place in your preheated oven, grill or smoker and cook for 1.5 hours.
