How to Make Rudy’s Texas Cowboy Beans?
These are not your usual baked beans, by the way. We have meat, beans, and other ingredients to bring versatile flavors to our dish. Not to mention, the green chili and hot pepper sauce call for a sweet bean dish.
Beans are cheap and pack a lot of proteins. Also, they can give you a boost while you are at your breakfast table. But most of the time – you wouldn’t want to eat a dull dish at breakfast. That’s why adding versatility to the dish is important.
Cowboy-style beans have a mixture of hot pepper sauce to add slight spiciness. On the other hand, it’s not too spicy to surprise you. Rather, the sweetness of the baked beans can start the day with a delightful mouthfeel.
Making the baked beans is not that hard – you have to spend only 15 minutes in preparation – and wait 2 hours for the beans to cook through in the oven. Once the beans are ready, serve it piping hot and eat it while hot.
So, it’s all about the 15 minutes preparation time.
15 Minutes Preparation Method:
It’s not that hard to prepare all the ingredients. First, we need to prepare ground beef. Yes, we can use store-bought ground beef but if you want a fresher taste – ground the beef on your own. Then we have to prepare the green chili peppers. Just as we said, if you don’t want to spend time or prepare fresh ingredients, you can buy canned chili peppers. Finally, we need to peel and chop 1 small Vidalia onion.
That’s about it – you should need 15 minutes or less to prepare all the ingredients. Finally, we will measure all the ingredients and start to cook.
So, what are the ingredients for our Texas baked beans? Let’s check them out first.
Ingredients We Will be Using
Ground Beef: We need 1 pound of ground beef for the baked beans.
Baked Beans: We are making this dish to serve to at least 12 people. So, we would require a lot of beans. You can buy 4 cans of 16 ounces beans. It would be better if the beans have pork in them. Otherwise, you’ll have to prepare the pork separately.
Green Chili Pepper: Chop and prepare 4 ounces of green chili pepper. Or you can buy 1 can worth of green chili pepper.
Vidalia Onion: Vidalia onions are much sweeter compared to other sharp flavored onions. We don’t need a lot of onions for our beans. Roughly chop 1 small Vidalia onion and we are good to go.
Barbecue Sauce: Measure 1 cup worth of barbecue sauce for the beans.
Brown Sugar: It’s better to keep the beans sweet and savory. So, to enhance the sweetness, we will add ½ cup brown sugar.
Garlic Powder: Adding 1 tablespoon worth of garlic powder can bring out the aroma and richness of our baked beans.
Chili Powder: Too much sweetness will not satisfy our taste buds. So, we need to balance the sweetness by adding 1 tablespoon of chili powder. It will also give color to our white stew.
Hot Pepper Sauce: This is one of the main ingredients to create a bold flavor. We will need 3 tablespoons of hot pepper sauce.
