Easy Baked Beans

Serves 8

Baked beans were meant to be doctored up to suit a cook’s taste, so feel free to make these with more or less sugar, a spicier salsa or mustard, and add-ins such as soy sausage or soy hot dogs.
  • 1½ cups dried red kidney beans
  • 2 medium onions, thinly sliced (3 cups)
  • 1 8-oz. jar medium salsa
  • ⅓ cup dark brown sugar
  • 3 Tbs. yellow mustard

1. Soak beans in 6 cups water overnight. Drain; reserve soaking liquid.
2. Coat Dutch oven with cooking spray, and heat over low heat. Add onions, cover, and cook 15 minutes, or until browned. Stir in 1 cup soaking liquid. Simmer 5 minutes, scraping up onion bits stuck to pot.
3. Stir in remaining ingredients and 5 cups water. Cover, and cook 1½ hours. Uncover; simmer 1 hour more, or until sauce has thickened.

I already had precooked my kidney beans. So after adding all the ingredients I only cooked it for about 45 minutes or so (I was hungry) and decreased the water to about 2.5 cups total. I also added soy chorizo for a spicy-sweet taste. Yum!!
