Ranch style beans

Ranch Style Beans

Better than canned by a long shot…

Sure, you need some planning, but homemade ranch style beans are a world better than what you’ll pick up in a can. Most of the recipe is slow cooker time and the prep is mainly rehydrating your pinto beans and ancho peppers, so the effort needed for this recipe is actually very little. And you’ll love the output on the other side. A little sweet, a little smoky, and a whole lot of earthy goodness. There are so many spices here, from cumin and rosemary to a few dashes of liquid smoke.

Ranch style beans are a delicious barbecue side, but don’t ignore them as a hearty lunch in their own right. Layer it over rice for more of a meal. You can also add in various meats to add more heartiness. Both ground beef and ground sausage work.

If you like this hearty ranch style beans recipe, don’t miss some of our bean-based sides from our spicy recipe index. Homemade Texas caviar pairs black beans with plenty of Tex-Mex vegetable favorites (corn, avocado, and more!). Or check out this spicy cowboy beans recipe. It uses plenty of ham steak, salted pork, and jalapeño pepper to really amp up your barbecue side game.
