  • 1 cup diced sweet onion – yellow or white will work
  • 1 15.5 ounce can kidney beans – drained and rinsed
  • 1 15.5 ounce can butter beans – drained and rinsed
  • 1 16-ounce can vegetarian baked beans – I used bush’s
  • 1 cup ketchup
  • ½ cup light brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon dry mustard powder
  • ½ tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • ¼ cup chicken broth


  • saute pan
  • colander


  • Gently spray a large sauté pan with cooking spray. Add your diced onion. Let the onions sweat until they become translucent.
  • Then, add the drained and rinsed kidney beans, butter beans, and 1 can of the baked beans (with sauce). Add the ketchup, apple cider vinegar, mustard powder, brown sugar, Worcestershire sauce, and chicken broth. Stir until well combined.
  • Let everything simmer over low heat on the stove top.
  • Option to add cooked protein of choice. I used pan seared chicken sausages.
  • You can serve this from the stovetop or bake it in a baking dish for 20-25 minutes at 350 degrees. I typically just let it simmer until the beans soften and serve it from the stovetop.
