Cowboy Baked Beans

You know what I don’t like? When someone says we’re going to have baked beans and they pour a can in a dish and serve it. Now don’t get me wrong- I use canned goods and canned goods can be good, but you have to give them a little more love.

This recipe is my go-to for any gathering. They’ve got just a little bite and a sweet BBQ flavor. Good beans come from knowing how to blend flavors and this one is spot on and cowboy approved!

For a less intense heat, lessen the amount of chipotle peppers and adobo sauce.
