Root Beer BBQ Beans
Saved for later (122)

Makes: 4 to 6 servings

Everyone loves beans at a barbecue. These have a nice root beer taste, but you can also use Dr Pepper, Cherry Coke, or the Southern favorite, RC Cola, for a distinctive flavor. Don’t use any diet drinks, as they get bitter when cooked.

  1. 1Cook the bacon with the onions in a medium saucepan over a grill or side burner until the bacon is brown and crisp, and the onions have become transparent and are just starting to brown.
  2. 2Add all of the remaining ingredients.
  3. 3Bring to a boil over medium-high heat; then reduce the heat and simmer, stirring often, until the mixture is slightly thickened, about 20 minutes. Remove the celery and serve the beans hot.
