Dutch's Wicked Baked Beans

This is a sweeter tasting bean than my Ranch Bean recipe.  This one is a hit with my kids.

Enjoy!                                                                                

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 Jalapeno Peppers, diced (seeding is optional)
1 - 55 ounce can Bush'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

Saute bacon pieces in fry pan until crispy and remove from pan with a slotted spoon. Saute onion, bell pepper and jalapeno 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 220-250 smoker for 2 1/2 - 3 hours (make sure temperature of the baked beans reaches 160 ) or place in a 350 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.

DISCLAIMER

With the Jalapeno 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 Jalapeno pepper and the dry mustard.

I plan on trying this recipe, but I have a question regarding the selection of beans. What type of bean do you suggest trying? You have Bush's baked beans listed, but aren't those beans completed and ready to serve?
animal

Yes they are already cooked but that is what you use.

I wonder what type they are? I'm trying to avoid as much sugar as possible.

Bush original, If you are cutting back on sugar use Splenda brown sugar and use 1/2 cup instead of one cup of brown sugar, I have cooked for a group of diabetic folks and used the Splenda in my rub and it is great. but only use half as much

Good Luck

The thing about splenda brown sugar blend is that it is 50% splenda and 50% regular brown sugar. The sugar substitute I have found to, one, really taste as sweet as sugar and two, make a brown sugar version is Ideal. You can get it at Food Lion, Kroger, Amazon. This is far better than other artificial sweetners out there and is actually very healthy for you. Approved and recommented by American Dental Association as the Xytitol is very good for your teeth.

I got in touch with Dutch on another forum. He suggested I use just regular pork n beans.

Thanks for the replies.

i would cut out the splenda guys! ive had SEVERAL nutritionists tell me the stuff is NOT what you want to put in your body (dangerous chemicals, etc).  

i use stevia (sweet leaf is the actual brand) and i use this in my coffee, etc.

iceman, you can use any kind of bean that you want. I made up a small batch of the WBB yesterday and used VanCamp's pork and beans.  No one at the house could tell the difference.

I too try to limit my sugar intake as I've been a Type 2 diabetic for the last 16 years.
icemanrrc

Yeah, the pork and beans seem to be a little less sugar added. I wonder what type of beans they are, if they are northern beans, pinto, or ??? That would help me out there. I could just buy those type beans and go ahead with the rest of the recipe.
Dutch

I believe that they are pinto beans.  If you take a look at my Rach Bean recipe that is posted here in the Recipe Section, you find that these beans are made up from dried beans.  Just use the same technique to prep the beans and the follow the reset of the ingredients for the WWB's.

Enjoy!
