We had a snow day that turned out to be not so snowy thus the title Fake Snow Day Baked Beans. The beans are very real, however, simple and delicious. Give them lots of time to bake in the slow oven for best flavor and texture. —SusanMurie
What You'll Need
dried navy beans, soaked overnight
chopped white onion
olive oil (more gives a richer taste)
chipotle chili in adobo sauce, smooshed
fresh ground black pepper
light brown sugar
kosher salt (adjust to your taste)
1 1/2 cups
Pre-heat oven to 250 degrees. Place drained beans into an ovenproof pot or casserole dish with a lid.
In a pan on medium heat, saute onion in olive oil until soft. Add paprika, chipotle, and black pepper. Cook 30 seconds.
Add to beans along with water, brown sugar, ground cloves, mustard, Liquid Smoke and salt. Taste liquid for seasoning and adjust salt and pepper to taste if needed.
Bake covered in the oven for 5 hours at 250 degrees. Check and see if you need to add any water along the way. Beans should be very soft, caramelized and absorbed all the flavors.
