Yes, more baked beans. I told you I really do love baked beans!
I also love salsa. So when I saw this with salsa or picante, I knew I had to try it. It was awesome.
We use a medium salsa which isn't too spicy. I didn't think that this was spicy at all.
I also used an applewood smoked bacon that just rocked this recipe!!
I have several baked beans recipes on this blog now. I couldn't tell you which was the best. Seriously. They all are awesome. In my opinion at least. :-)
Salsa Bacon Baked Beans
Inspired from The Finer Things in Life
6 slices of bacon, diced
1 cup onion, chopped
2 cans baked beans
2 cans kidney beans, drained and rinsed
2 can butter beans, drained and rinsed (I used one butter and one great northern)
1/4 cup barbecue sauce
1/4 cup ketchup
1/2 cup sugar or sugar substitute
1/4 cup molasses
2 tbsp. mustard
1 tsp. salt
1 cup picante sauce (I used medium salsa)
Slow cooker method: Fry bacon and onion in skillet until bacon is crispy. Add all the beans to the crockpot. Add bacon and onion. Mix ketchup, BBQ sauce, splenda, mustard, molasses, salt and salsa. Add to bean mixture. Stir and cook on low for 4 - 5 hours in crock pot.
Baked method: Fry bacon in a large stock pot until bacon is crispy. Add all the beans to bacon and onion. Mix ketchup, barbeque sauce, sugar, mustard, molasses, salt and salsa. Blend, then add to bean mixture. Bake at 350 for 1 hour. If you want runnier beans, keep the lid on for 40 minutes of baking time, otherwise for thicker beans, bake uncovered.
