Why just have plain baked beans at your next cookout when you can spice them up with chorizo, onions, jalapenos and mesquite BBQ sauce? You can either cook these in the oven or on the grill or over the open fire pit.
Here's our starting point:
1 can Bush's Chili Beans, choose your sauce preference, mild/medium/hot
1 T. olive oil
1 small yellow onion, diced
4 oz. chorizo
1 small jalapeno, seeded and diced
3 T. mesquite BBQ sauce
cilantro for garnish
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a small skillet, over medium heat, heat the olive oil and saute the onion and chorizo for about 10 - 12 minutes. Drain well.
In a medium bowl, combine the beans, onions, chorizo, jalapeno and BBQ sauce.
Pour beans into a 8 inch cast iron skillet and bake for about 30 minutes. Garnish with chopped cilantro if you like.
