Spicy Baked Beans

After the beans have been baked, they can be frozen successfully for up to one month.

Reheat in a 350 degrees F oven until heated through.

Ingredients

  • Nonstick cooking oil spray (we use olive oil spray)
  • 1 (15 ounce) can black beans
  • 1 (28 ounce) can vegetarian baked beans
  • 1 (15 ounce) can navy beans
  • 1 large onion, chopped (about 1 cup)
  • 1 medium bell pepper, chopped (about 1 cup)
  • 1 jalapeno, minced
  • 1/4 cup ketchup
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar, packed
  • 2 tablespoons prepared mustard
  • 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder (not garlic salt)
  • 2 teaspoons chipotle powder
  • 2 slices bacon (optional)

Instructions

  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a 9 x 11-inch baking pan with oil spray.
  2. Combine all ingredients, including liquid from beans, in baking pan. Stir gently, but thoroughly, until all ingredients are mixed well. If you are using the bacon, lay the strips across the top of baking pan.
  3. Bake for 30 to 35 minutes, or until the mixture is bubbly. Serve immediately.
