Today’s recipe was inspired by one of our favorite Food Network Chefs, Damaris Phillips. She made these amazing looking baked beans with a strawberry bbq sauce and it looked simple how could we not make our version? We thought making beans would take hours! And we’re sure there are recipes we will try where it will take hours, but this recipe is so simple, everyone can make it!
This past weekend we’ve been hosting our good friends Pegi and Beetle for a pork fest! Almost everything we’ve made has had pork or bacon in the dishes. We actually made these cherry chipotle baked beans but instead of brisket, we used bacon. Which, totally works, if you don’t have brisket! This recipe is perfect for using left over brisket!
Cherry Chipotle Baked Beans
- 1 Red Pepper (Diced)
- 1 Medium Onion (Diced)
- 2-15oz Cans Pinto Beans (drained and rinsed)
- 1 to 1.5 Cups Cherry Chipotle BBQ Sauce
- 1 to 2 Cups Brisket (Roughly Chopped)*
- Splash of water
*Brisket is optional.
In a dutch oven, heat one tablespoon of olive oil over medium-high heat. When the oil is hot, add the red pepper and onion and sauté for 2 to 3 minutes.
Next, add your your beans and stir.
Add the BBQ sauce and brisket and mix well. Lower the heat and cover and cook for 25 to 35 minutes. Stirring occasionally. If needed, add a splash of water to make them extra saucy. Serve and enjoy!
