I'm linking up with Kelly's Korner today and showing off my favorite summer recipe... baked beans! In the summer it isn't a family get together unless someone brings these baked beans.


Spicy Smokey Sweet Bakes Beans 


1/4 pound bacon in 1/2 inches pieces
1/2 finely chopped yellow onion
2 t minced garlic
1/4 t red pepper flakes
1 can (28 ounces) Bush's original baked beans (liquid drained)
1/4 C ketchup (add more tsps if needed)
2 t Worcestershire sauce
1/2 t chipotle chili pepper
salt and pepper to taste

1. Cook bacon over medium heat until crispy (8-10 minutes) stirring occasionally.
2. Add onions cook under tender.
3. Add garlic and red pepper flakes, cook about 30 seconds. Stirring occasionally. Add baked beans, ketchup, worcestershire and chipotle chili pepper.
4. Bring to simmer, stirring occasionally. Cook on low for 15 minutes. Stir occasionally.

Enjoy!
