The Musical Fruit

What a crock

Yes, we all know the song… Beans are definitely a good thing, but when you add bacon, chorizo and beer to them you could travel back in time! You will NEVER buy canned baked beans again, I promise. Now, unless you want a REALLY noisy evening, you probably don’t want this to be your main dish, so I usually pair them with some ribs, which is a whole other post. Go ahead, turn up the music!


6 thick cut slices of bacon cut into 1 inch pieces

2 links of fresh chorizo (not the cured\hard stuff)

1 onion roughly diced

1 small can of tomato paste

2 28 oz cans of red kidney beans

1/4 Cup ketchup

1/4 Cup apple cider vinegar

1/4 Cup mollasses

1 Tbl worcestershire sauce

2 tsp salt

2 tsp BBQ rub (recipe is HERE)

1/4 Cup brown sugar

1 bottle of good dark beer

Preheat oven to 225

Cook the bacon and chorizo in a dutch oven over medium heat until it starts to crisp. Throw in onion and cook until it softens. Add the rest of the ingredients in and bring to a simmer stirring occasionally. Slap a lid on it and put it in the oven for at least 2 hours or as long as you want.
