Recipe

Instead of making baked beans, try this Slow Cooker Barbecue Lentils instead. Great as a side dish, meatless sandwich, or main course.

My father always loved baked beans growing up but I never really understood the appeal. Quite honestly, I didn't really like beans at all. Then suddenly that all changed when I moved out to Los Angeles and fell in love with beans by way of all the amazing Mexican food I was eating. Fast forward a few years and I love almost all kind of beans but still am not a huge fan of baked beans. However I discovered I am a fan of these baked bean inspired Barbecue Lentils. The lentils have an earthier flavor that I really love with the smoky, tomato-y, slightly sweet barbecue sauce. And since I like heat, I always throw some canned chipotle peppers in the mix as well.
