3 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 cup tomato puree

2 chipotle chiles in adobo sauce, minced
56 ounces canned baked beans

Preheat oven to 300

In a large skillet, add 1 teaspoon olive oil and heat over medium-high. Add shallots and cook until they begin to turn a light brown. Add cumin and garlic - cook for an additional minute. Stir in tomato puree and canola oil. Cook for 2 minutes or until thick - mix in honey, vinegar, molasses, Worcestershire, salt and chiles. Reduce heat and simmer for about 10 minutes - be sure to stir often.

In a 2 quart baking dish, mix together beans and the above mixture. Bake until thick and bubbly, about 60-70 minutes.

    don't post this, hate posting replies just to get a hit to my blog like 99% of people do..I could care less...I want to thank you for this recipe! I modified this a bit using 1/2 balsamic vinegar and 1/2 chardonnay wine. I always keep in my freezer when we BBQ, burnt ends which I can use later for my dishes. I added this to the bean recipe,(simmering brings out the smoked flavor) and used fresh jalapeno. They thickened up perfectly and were delicious. Thank You!
