How to Make Slow Cooker Soda Baked Beans

The beauty of this slow cooker recipe is all of the ingredients go in at once, put on the lid, and forget about it. Now you have a good four hours to focus on other things.

This recipe sets itself apart with a quartet of beans, ham, red onion, garlic, and a blend of Coke and Sprite. The sodas, brown sugar, and molasses add the sweet, while cumin, curry powder and pinch of cayenne add the smoke and heat. Dial the spices up or down as you wish, but in the end you’ll have beans steeped in a syrupy, sweet n’ spicy sauce.
