A decadent baked bean recipe with a Southwest accent.
- Set oven to 325°F. In a heavy bottom pot, render bacon and cook until bacon is crisp. Remove bacon with a slotted spoon. Reserve, leaving fat in pan.
- Add onions, poblano and garlic to bacon fat and saute until tender. Add beans, BBQ Sauce, stock and cumin. Stir to combine and heat to a simmer.
- Transfer mixture to a shallow hotel pan. Cover and bake until bean mixture has reduced and thickened, about 30-40 minutes.
- Stir in reserved bacon and garnish with Cojita cheese and cilantro. Serve hot.
This recipe is also wonderful with Cattlemen's® Lousiana Hot & Spicy® BBQ Sauce, Chipotle or Bourbon BBQ sauces. For additional spicy heat add McCormick® Culinary Ground Chipotle Pepper or McCormick® Culinary Ground Ancho Chile Pepper.
