“My daughter and I love the black beans found at a popular fast food chicken restaurant, but I could not find a recipe for that particular taste. I think I came pretty close with this one. A little spicy, a little sweet but oh, so good!!! These beans go great with almost any meat but are especially good with grilled chicken.”

Directions

  1. Drain the black beans from their soaking water and place in a slow cooker. Fill with enough fresh water to cover them. Cover and set to High.
  2. Heat bacon drippings in a skillet over medium heat. Add onions; cook and stir until tender. Stir this into the beans along with the brown sugar, liquid smoke, molasses and jalapeno slices. Stir to blend, then cover and cook on High for 5 to 6 hours, or until beans are tender.

Excellent recipe! Very easy to make and tastes delicious. The "smokey" flavor sets this dish off wonderfully. I made two small modifications because of my personal preferences -- I eased up a tad on the jalepenos and used soy bacon bits. I would never have thought to add the molasses and brown sugar, but they rounded the dish off nicely, giving the beans a more mellow flavor. This is a new favorite!

Instead of pickled jalapeno peppers, I used a 4 oz. can of diced jalapeno peppers and it was great.

I make this recipe regularly but I rarely have the forethought to pre-soak beans.. so I just use canned black beans. It's very good!
