When the beans are cooked and tender add the mustard taste test for salt and add 1 4 cup of ketchup 1 teaspoon of worcestershire sauce and 1 4 teaspoon of chili powder cook the beans for about 30 minutes to 1 hour longer if desired add about 1 2 cup of diced green bell peppers jalapeno baked beans reduce the molasses to 1 4 cup.

Traditional baked beans are started on the stovetop with a saute of some bacon and a diced onion then dried beans and some cooking liquid are added and the whole pot goes into a warm oven for several hours the long low heat of the oven transforms the beans from hard to tender thickening the cooking liquid as it absorbs it making for a rich gravy around the hellip.

For 20 30 people i double the recipe i would use 5 cans of baked beans and 2 lbs of beef 1cup brown sugar and double the rest add a packet of onion soup mix too that just is the icing on the cake seriously 5 years ago we entered it in a baked beans contest we took 1st place with the recipe i rsquo m glad this recipe is on here.
