You will never buy canned baked beans again!!!!!
My Husband started making these beans a few years ago and they have become a summertime staple in our house. We have gotten so many compliments that we now always bring them to picnics and BBQs. But they are also a great warm side dish for the winter months. They are amazing, sweet but not too sweet and packed full of flavor! Try them and you will never want canned beans again.
1 red bell pepper
1 large vidalia onion
1 fresh jalapeño pepper
1/2 cup white wine
1 tsp. mustard powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. pepper
1/4 cup molasses
1 tsp. Apple Cider Vinegar
1 bay leaf
A tablespoon or two of bacon fat
1 can black beans
1 can red beans
1 can white beans
1/2 cup chicken stock
Dice peppers and onions. Saute onion and red pepper in bacon fat until translucent but not brown.
Add Jalapeno pepper and saute another 5 minutes.
Add the 1/2 cup wine (you can substitute whiskey if you want)cook down about 3-5 minutes.
Add chicken stock, mustard powder, salt, pepper, molasses, Apple cider vinegar and beans. mix thoroughly and add the bay leaf. Make sure bay leaf is submerged in the liquid. Bring to a boil.
Cover and simmer 2-3 hours. Stir occasionally.
** My Husband would like me to add that to ensure proper flavor , you should have a sip of whatever beverage you are drinking in between each step. For the sake of not being responsible for drunk people in the kitchen I left that step out……..LOL!
You can always add cayenne pepper or chipolte pepper if you like them a little spicy!
These go great as a side dish for
