Prepare the Beans:

Begin by opening each can of pork n’ beans. Carefully pour off all the standing liquid from the top of the cans and discard it. You want to use only the beans themselves for this recipe.

Transfer the beans to a large pan set over medium heat.

Flavor the Beans:

To the pan of beans, add the ketchup, barbecue sauce, brown sugar, yellow mustard, Worcestershire sauce, and optional Liquid Smoke.

Sprinkle in the garlic powder and pepper.

Gently stir the ingredients together until well combined.

Add the Hot Dogs:

Cut the hot dog wieners into bite-sized pieces.

Add the hot dog pieces to the pan of beans and sauce.


Increase the heat to medium-high and allow the mixture to come to a gentle boil.

Once boiling, reduce the heat to low and cover the pan.

Allow the Beanie Weenies to simmer for approximately 20 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the flavors meld together and the hot dogs are heated through.


Once the Beans and franks are ready, serve them hot, straight from the pan.

Enjoy this comforting dish with your favorite sides, such as cornbread, coleslaw, or a simple green salad.

Crock Pot Preparation:

1 ) For a hands-off cooking method, Beans and franks can also be prepared in a crockpot.

2 ) Follow the same instructions as above, but instead of using a pan, combine all the ingredients in a crockpot.

3 ) Cook on Low for 4-5 hours or on High for 2-3 hours, until the flavors have melded together and the hot dogs are heated through.

4 ) Stir occasionally if possible to ensure even cooking.



  • Use plain pork n’ beans for this recipe, avoiding baked beans or barbecue beans.
  • Be sure to pour off the standing liquid from the cans of beans before using.
  • Feel free to use your favorite brand of hot dog wieners, whether classic or all-beef.
  • Adjust the number of wieners based on personal preference, using either 10 regular or 8 bun-length wieners.
  • Serve Beanie Weenies as a comforting weeknight dinner or as a crowd-pleasing option for potlucks and gatherings.
