Bunkhouse Beans

Total Time

Prep: 10 min. Bake: 35 min.


6-8 servings

With sliced hot dogs and several types of beans in the mixture, this hearty dish could be a meal in itself. It was very popular at my son's cowboy theme party. We turned our kitchen peninsula into a "covered wagon" to serve the buffet.


  • 1 cup salsa
  • 2/3 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2/3 cup barbecue sauce
  • 5 hot dogs, halved lengthwise and sliced
  • 3 tablespoons dried minced onion
  • 2 cans (16 ounces each) pork and beans, drained
  • 1 can (16 ounces) chili beans, undrained
  • 1 can (16 ounces) butter beans or lima beans, rinsed and drained


  1. In a bowl, combine the first five ingredients. Stir in the beans; pour into an ungreased 2-qt. baking dish. Bake, uncovered, at 375° for 35-40 minutes or until bubbly.

    This is the best beans with hotdogs ever. We left out the salsa and used northern beans in place of the kidney beans. SOOOO good. A great belly warmer on a cold day.

    Wonderful dish! I made this last year for a 4th of July BBQ and it was a hit.

    My family loves this. We've used little smokies cut in half instead of hot dogs and also made them in the crock pot.
