Texas-Style Baked Beans
Crowd pleaser! I have made a modified version of this recipe three times to take to cook outs. Each time, there are no leftovers at all and multiple compliments.
The changes: My version uses mild country sausage instead of hamburger.
Instead of a whole cup of BBQ sauce, I used 3/4 cup of Sweet Baby Rays sauce. That was all I had in the fridge the first time I made this recipe. Then I added 1/4 cup of ketchup to make up the difference.
I substituted Texas Pete hot sauce. (It's a local favorite, similar to Frank's and not nearly as hot as Tobasco sauce.) And I drained most of the juice from the cans of beans.
Also, instead of using the crock pot, I cooked these in a large foil pan in the oven with some bacon pieces cut up on top. 350 for about an hour.
This recipe is a keeper. The chilies, the spices, and BBQ sauce really set these baked beans apart from any other I've had. Not too sweet either.
