How about something different than the same ole canned baked beans. These beans are slow cooked with plenty of ingredients to make a side dish for a barbecue sure to give it a kick. I use the beans that come in the bag but you can use canned beans if you want. Like always remember that measurements are suppose to be approximate, always mix to your taste.Ingredients: 24 oz of pinto beans 1 large onion diced 3 strips of bacon cut into small pieces 1/2 pound of sirloin steak cut into small chunks 1 fresh tomato diced 1 ham hock 2 jalepano peppers diced 2 12 oz cans of beer 4 cloves garlic minced salt/pepper Directions: If using beans in the bag, soak and follow directions to prepare. Once beans are soaked and ready or you have taken your canned beans and put them in a pot add all of the above ingredients and simmer for at least 2 hours. Remove the ham hock and cut all the meat off and add to the beans. Continue to simmer another hour. Now you have some beans that are kickin !!!!! CHEERS !!!
