Description

Smoky chipotle peppers give this American classic a fun, spicy twist!


Ingredients

  • 3 smoked bacon slices, diced
  • 3/4 cup chopped onion
  • 1 cup barbecue sauce (use your favorite!)
  • 1 cup beer*
  • 2 tbsp light molasses
  • 1.5 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 1.5 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon La Morena Chipotle Peppers in Adobo Sauce, minced
  • 1 15 ounce can Great Northern beans, drained
  • 1 15 ounce can Pinto beans, drained
  • 1 15 ounce can Light Red Kidney beans, drained

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. In a dutch oven or large skillet, add bacon and cook until crisp, around 5 minutes.
  3. Add onion, and allow to sweat with bacon for 2-3 minutes.
  4. Turn off burner and remove from heat. Add bbq sauce, beer, light molasses, mustard, brown sugar, Worcester and soy sauces, stir.
  5. Add diced La Morena Chipotle peppers, stir.
  6. Add beans, stir.
  7. If using dutch oven, transfer directly into oven. If using skillet, transfer beans into 13×9” casserole baking dish.
  8. Bake uncovered until liquid bubbles and thickens slightly, about 1 hour. Cool for several minutes before serving.

Notes

  • I used a light wheat beer. I think a pilsner or dark stout would also be great.
