How to Make FunniBonz Baked Beans

FunniBonz Original Baked Beans can be made in a vegetarian variety also, since FunniBonz Barbeque Sauce is both vegetarian and certified kosher. Here's a quick and easy way to make FunniBonz Famous Barbeque Baked Beans.

Dice about four slices of bacon. Quick tip: If the bacon is soft, use kitchen shears to more easily cut the bacon into pieces.

Place bacon into pot and render until golden.

While the bacon is cooking, drain and rinse beans.
(We recommend Goya as they are tightly packed and the texture works very well with our sauce.)
Here I used pinto beans but navy, northern, cannelini, lima and butter beans all work just as well. You can even mix them for an awesome medley.

Once the bacon is cooked down some, drain off most of the bacon fat. If you are making a vegetarian version of the beans, simply add enough oil to the pan to sauté the peppers and onions.

Add the vegetables to the bacon.

Mix well and sauté until tender.

Next, add the beans to the pot.

Then add your favorite FunniBonz Barbeque Sauce.

Mix well. Be gentle so that you don't break up softer beans.

Put on the lid, turn the heat down to low and let simmer for 15 or 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.  Pinto beans are larger and denser than most.  I usually let them go for about 40 minutes or so.

Serve piping hot with your favorite steaks, ribs, sausage, burgers, dogs or all by itself all year round!
It's like Summer in a jar!
