Re: I need a kick ass baked bean recipe!Here ya go Wynn, hope it kicks your butt and then some!! :D
WICKED BAKED BEANS
(Beans that will even make Chili Heads happy)
6-8 strips of bacon cut into 1/2 inch squares
1/2 Medium onion, diced
1/2 Bell pepper, diced
1 - 2 JalapeÃ±o Peppers, diced (seeding is optional) 8)
1 - 55 ounce can Bushâ€™s Baked Beans
1-8 ounce can of pineapple chunks, drained
1 Cup Brown Sugar, packed
1 Cup ketchup
1/2 - 1 Tbs. dry (ground) mustard
SautÃ© bacon pieces in fry pan until crispy and remove from pan with a slotted spoon. SautÃ© onion, bell pepper and jalapeÃ±o pepper until tender.
In a large mixing bowl combine beans, pineapple, brown sugar, ketchup and dry mustard. Stir in bacon pieces and vegetables. Pour into a 12X9 or a deep 9X9 aluminum baking pan. (While mixing if things look dry, add additional ketchup 1/4 -1/2 cup at a time)
Place in a 220-250Â° smoker for 2 1/2 â€“ 3 hours (make sure temperature of the baked beans reaches 160Â° ) or place in a 350Â° oven and bake for 1 hour.
NOTE: If you are making these beans as a side dish for Kansas City style pork ribs, smoke the removed skirt meat for 1-1 1/2 hours, then dice the skirt meat and stir into the Baked Beans.
With the JalapeÃ±o pepper and the dry mustard these beans have the potential for some MAJOR heat. CAUTION should be exercised when feeding these beans to small children and/or the elderly.
To make this recipe Family Friendly, omit the JalapeÃ±o pepper and the dry mustard. :roll:
