This recipe is an adaptation from my girlfriend Jan's mother, Alice. I bought one of those mega cans of Bush's Baked Beans and diced prosciutto from Sam's Club/Costco, and made two different types of beans with very little extra work. I loved the chipotle version.

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. Saute the onion, green pepper, and prosciutto in 2 tablespoons olive oil, in a large heavy pot, until the onions and peppers are soft and the prosciutto is browned.
  2. Add the entire can of beans into a large pot along with remaining. ingredients, except the pureed chipotle.
  3. Divide the beans evenly between two ovenproof casseroles (I covered two ovenproof mixing bowls with foil).
  4. I added the pureed chipotle to one of the mixing bowls, then covered them and baked them at 375 degrees for an hour.
  5. Uncover and cook for another 20 minutes.
  6. Stir them about halfway through the cooking time, and then again when you uncover them.
  7. If you so desire, add a little chopped fresh cilantro to the chipotle version.
