Trying to figure out what to make for the next office “pot luck”, or “BBQ” ?
Well I got the perfect dish, not difficult to make, with the flavors of sweet brown sugar, savory bacon, and a kick to your palate of jalapeno and serrano chili.
7 lb can of Bush’s Baked beans
1 lb thick cut bacon. (i prefer applewood)
1 large Vidalia onion, diced
2-3 large Jalapeno and Serrano chili, seeded, and ribs removed. Cut into fine pieces
1/2 cup catsup
1/4 brown sugar
3 Tbsp Regular mustard
Optional- Cayenne pepper
Over large dutch oven or large pot, cut up bacon and render till bacon is crispy. Remove bacon and put on several layers of paper towels, you want bacon to be completely dry before re adding later. Drain all grease leaving a thin layer covering bottom of pan.
Add diced onion, reduce heat to medium heat and cook till just before onion gets translucent. About 5 minutes.
Add Jalapeno`and Serrano Chili and cook for another 5 minutes.
Reduce heat to med-low and add can of beans and next three ingredients. If you want it extra hot add a dash of Cayenne pepper. Stir all ingredients till well mixed and cover drop heat to low and cook for 20 min. Add bacon just before serving.
