BBQ Baked Beans

Friday, December 10, 2010

My favorite Kansas City Barbeque is "Bates City BBQ", and these beans are my own copy cat version of their baked beans! The sauce is sweet with a spicy kick, and the green pepper flavor is infused throughout. These baked beans are STUPENDOUS! I eat these beans as a meal they are so good! But that's just me... some people consider beans the "poor man's meat" but I like to think of it as the "healthy man's meat"! So, I made these beans with some delicious macaroni salad for dinner, yummm-o!

1 green pepper, chopped
1/3 cup sugar
1/3 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup ketchup
1/2 cup barbecue sauce
1 tablespoon prepared yellow mustard
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/2 teaspoon chili powder
1 (16 ounce) red beans, undrained
2 (16 ounce) cans navy beans, drained

In a large bowl, stir all the ingredients together (stir the beans in last). Pour into a 2-3 quart casserole dish and bake, uncovered, at 350 degrees for 1 1/2 hours. After an hour I stirred the beans and put them back in for another 1/2 hour (the beans will be hot and bubbly after an hour but you'll want to cook them for another 1/2 hour so the liquid reduces).
