Craig's BBQ Sauce Texas Pepper Jelly brand. Competition bbq winner and backyard bbq approvedCraig’s BBQ Sauce is the perfect and versatile ingredient for many of a football fan’s favorite munchies. Let’s start with many people’s favorite: Spicy Baked Beans.

You’ve got things to do on SuperBowl Sunday; here’s the easy version!


  • 1 28-oz can pork & beans
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup finely diced onions
  • 1/4 cup bacon grease
  • 3 slices bacon, uncooked
  • 1 1/2 cups Craig’s Habanero Ketchup
  • 1/4 cup Craig’s BBQ Sauce

What to do:

In a large casserole dish, add all ingredients except the bacon and mix thoroughly. Lay the bacon slices on top of the bean mixture.

Bake in a 350-degree oven for about an hour. If you prefer your baked beans to be a little dry, bake for another 15 minutes.

The Craig’s BBQ Sauce will turn an ordinary pan of baked beans into an absolute feast. You’ll probably have to make another batch before the evening’s over.
