Sweet and Spicy BBQ Beans

One of my favorite things about BBQ is the BBQ beans, or “pork n beans” as they are sometimes known.  Love them.  My mom always made these sweet and spicy beans when I was growing up and they are still #1 in my book!  My husband wanted to grill some ribs this weekend, so what better side dish than beans?  It’s the easiest recipe but it’s so good…

Sweet and Spicy BBQ Beans

Ingredients:
1/4 lb. bacon, cut into small pieces
1 onion, chopped
1 lb. pork n beans (I like the Showboat brand)
1/2 cup packed dark brown sugar
1/4-1/2 tsp cayenne (use 1/4 if small children will be eating it)

Method:
Fry bacon until almost crisp, then add the onions.  Cook until the onions are soft then add the beans, sugar and cayenne.  Allow to simmer a little while before serving.
