These barbeque beans are very different than your run of the mill baked beans. They are less sweet than baked beans and a lot spicier. They are also very meaty and filling and men seem to really like them, probably for that reason. They are the perfect side for any type of barbecue meat and you will need some of your barbecue meat for the beans, so coordinate making these when you barbecue. These beans are perfect with the Slow Cooker Pulled Pork in Coca Cola Barbeque Sauce. You will need about 2 cups of the pork chopped for the beans. You can also used chopped beef brisket. They are also good served over Cornbread Hoecakes. Here's what you will need to make these beans:
1 28 oz. can Busch Homestyle Baked Beans (do not drain)
2 cans Ranch Beans (do not drain)
2 cups chopped barbequed pork or beef (I like to use the end pieces)
1 cup chopped onion (I used Vidalia, but any sweet onion will do)
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 cup of your favorite barbeque sauce
1/2 cup ketchup
1 cup Coca Cola (Diet or Regular will work)
1 tsp. yellow mustard
1 tsp. chili powder
2 Tbs. Worcestershire sauce
1/3 cup pickled jalapeno peppers, chopped
3 or 4 dashes of Tabasco sauce (optional, leave this out if you don't like too much heat)
Spray a 2 quart casserole dish with nonstick cooking spray. Pour the beans, undrained, and all of the other ingredients except the meat in the dish and mix together.
Place the casserole dish in a preheated 350 degree oven for 45 minutes. Give the beans a stir about half way through the cooking time.
