I made this recipe up too. Very inexpensive - Dollar Store beans from the can. I like the classic cowboy beans - however, my future son-in-law doesn't eat pork. So, I figured I better make a new family baked bean recipe that he can enjoy too. I'm calling them cowgirl beans because they are meatless.
Cowgirl Baked Beans
Start with any 5 cans of beans you like. I chose these. Open, drain, rinse and put in crock pot.
Mix together. Add 1 small onion diced.
In a small pan, heat together the following: 1 12 oz. can tomato paste; 1 C brown sugar; 1/4 C yellow mustard; 1/4 C molasses; 1 t dehydrated garlic and 1 t chili powder. Begin to heat through and mix well.
To that add 1 t apple cider vinegar; 1 t Worcester sauce; 1 t liquid smoke and few splashes of Tabasco sauce. Mix well - continue to heat through. Stir until almost bubbly.
Pour over beans in crock pot. S & P to taste, cook on low and forget about it...super easy.
I didn't want to make this too spicy - you could add more chili powder or pepper flakes. Enjoy - this cowgirl approves!
