Bobby Flay’s Honey-Rum Baked Black Beans

May/June 2011

Your rating: None Average: 3.6 (89 votes)

Chef Bobby Flay cooked these baked black beans, spiked with chorizo and rum, on one of his television shows, Throwdown! with Bobby Flay, to compete with a more-traditional batch of Carolina baked beans. We adore the results. If you bring them along to a summer party, reheat before serving or bring them in a crock-pot and plug it in when you get to the party. Recipe adapted from Bobby Flay’s Throwdown! by Bobby Flay with Stephanie Banyas and Miriam Garron (Clarkson Potter, 2010).

You do know dry beans plump

You do know dry beans plump up when cooked? 1 cup dry black beans equals 2 to 3 cups once cooked.

In addition, the recipe called for 2 cups of diced chorizo and a diced onion and carrot.

Fabulous Recipe

These have become the go-to baked beans in our house. Make sure to use Spanish Chorizo it will make this dish rock. Try it, I promise, you'll like it.


I don't usually go the "dry bean" route..but did this time. Unfortunately, I messed up with the rum (got spiced instead of dark) and the only chorizo I could find in the store was ground; it fell to pieces once heated). So, I ended up with almost 7 pounds of the worst smelling concoction ever. My friend is gonna give them a try and see how well she can do (now that she knows what NOT to buy)!! Sorry Bobby...I'll do better next time.

you didn't follow the recipe.........why rate it then?????????? makes it hard for us to decide

Absolutely incredible!

While these were a bit time-consuming to make, it was well worth the effort. I couldn't find chorizo so I used a spiced summer sausage. They turned out incredible and were the absolute hit of the picnic I brought them to!

The baked beans tasted good, I liked the addition of the rum, but next time will leave out the chorizo.

Easy to prepare, although time consuming

I'm glad some people liked

I'm glad some people liked this recipe...don't mind the time consuming but... took 3 hours and some then beans were still a little like pebbles. I boiled them as per direction and left them soaked all night. Very disappointing results..Being French Canadian I cook a lot of baked beans of all kinds but these black beans? Never again. Enjoy them everyone
