These are some of the greatest baked beans I have ever tasted. The beer adds such a great flavor! And they are really easy to throw together. A perfect addition to a barbecue or pot luck. They are easily reheated as well so they can be made ahead.
Beer Baked Beans
6 bacon slices
1 1/2 cup chopped onion
1 1/4 cup barbecue sauce
3/4 cup dark beer (this *makes* the dish–don’t leave it out!)
1/4 cup molasses
3 tablespoons Dijon mustard
3 tablespoons dark brown sugar
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
1 tablespoon soy sauce
4-6 teaspoons chipotles
6 15-16 oz. cans beans (Great Northern or cannellini beans)
Cook bacon to your liking and drain off fat. Cut bacon into pieces and set aside. Cook onion in a little of the bacon grease until translucent. Add the rest of the ingredients (including the cooked bacon and onion) in an ovenproof dish and cook at 350 degrees for 1 hour.
