Spicy Baked Beans

READY IN: 1hr 5mins
Recipe by gailanng

My spin on a Jimmy Dean bakeoff winner 2005. In my picture, I made 1/2 the recipe which makes plenty. I kept the full amount (1 lb) pork sausage, used chipotle powder for the red pepper and would cut back on the black pepper if you like it less spicy.

I think it definetely has too much red pepper! Other than that we liked it. I cut the recipe in half except I used all the sausage. I used about 2 Tbsps. of brown sugar and with the BBQ sauce it was plenty sweet. I think it would work just as well with ground beef or turkey. Thanks for posting!
