I make this recipe all the time for my family... I can't remember where I got it from but we all LOVE them.
Maple Baked Beans
1 large onion, chopped 2 garlic cloves, minced 3 Tbsp. Virgin Olive Oil 4 cans (19 fl oz/540 mL each) pinto beans, rinsed (I use a mix of pinto and navy beans and make sure there is no added salt as I don't need the extra sodium.) 3/4 cup BBQ Sauce 1/2 cup maple syrup
HEAT oven to 375ºF.
COOK and stir onions and garlic in olive oil in large skillet on medium-high heat 5 min. or until onions are crisp-tender. Stir in remaining ingredients. POUR into 13x9-inch baking dish. BAKE 45 min. or until hot and bubbly, stirring occasionally.
Liquid Smoke is a great addition to a bean dish when you want some "pork or ham" flavor. You don't need to add very much, so use sparingly.
