Spicy Baked Beans. With Chili Powder, Worcestershire Sauce and Liquid Smoke, so flavorful you won’t even notice there’s no bacon in the recipe.
Happy 2nd Wednesday to all, and that means we’re joining in the Blogger’s Clue fun for June. Blogger’s Clue is a monthly party created by Liz over at That Skinny Chick can Bake. For each assignment, we’re given a clue, and a blog and we’re to take that clue and find a recipe to make. This month that clue was BBQ!
I was assigned to a blog who I’ve been following for some time. Elliot’s Eats. Deb lives in Tulsa, and adopted a stray kitten who wandered upon her doorstep and found his way into the hearts of a non-cat loving couple.
Deb named the cat after her favorite poet, and she has also titled her blog. Deb is a great channel for some good food, travel and enjoyable reading.
Her philosophy is to patronize small and local owned businesses, to grow her own veggies, extend the growing season with a green and hoop house and visit local farmer’s markets. Her clever style of writing, (English major-driven, her, not the cat) makes for a great read with some delicious food thrown in.
Her BBQ Ribs and Spicy Baked Beans post caught my eye for this month’s project. Reason? One of the first things I learned to make when I was very young, were baked beans. And my mom’s pan fried chicken and gravy recipe. The beans was my own special recipe using a can of pork and beans and doctored up with catsup, mustard and brown sugar.
At my young age, I thought it was brilliant. Eliot’s Eats takes my simpleton idea and turns it into a masterpiece of a side dish. Baked until bubbly and caramelized, let’s take a look at this Junior League Oklahoma spicy baked beans recipe.
Recipe for Spicy Baked Beans
With Chili Powder, Worcestershire Sauce and Liquid Smoke, you won’t even notice that there’s no bacon in the recipe. In her post, Deb indicates she wanted to try this recipe with black beans, as well. I’m wondering if she did? I’d love the know the result. Thanks for a great recipe! This Oklahoma Spicy Baked Beans recipe will be a staple side for my BBQ slabs.
