Submitted by: KLYN2006


Number of Servings: 9

Ingredients

    2 cups water
    4 (16-ounce) cans low-sodium pinto beans, rinsed and drained
    2 bay leaves
    1 (14-ounce) can fat-free, less-sodium chicken broth
    1 medium yellow onion, peeled and quartered
    2 bacon slices (uncooked), chopped
    2 cups chopped yellow onion (about 2 medium)
    1 tablespoon minced garlic
    2 teaspoons chili powder
    3/4 cup no salt-added ketchup
    1/3 cup packed brown sugar
    3 tablespoons Dijon mustard
    2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
    1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
    1 (12-ounce) bottle amber ale (such as Redhook)
    Cooking spray

Directions

Preheat oven to 300.

Combine first 5 ingredients in a Dutch oven; bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer 15 minutes. Drain over a large bowl; reserve cooking liquid. Discard onion and bay leaves.

Cook bacon in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat until crisp. Remove bacon from pan, reserving 1 tablespoon drippings in pan; set bacon aside. Add chopped onion to drippings in pan; cook 10 minutes or until golden brown and caramelized, stirring frequently. Add garlic and chili powder to pan; cook 1 minute, stirring frequently. Add ketchup and next 5 ingredients (through ale) and 1/2 cup reserved bean liquid to pan; bring to a boil. Add beans and bacon. Reduce heat, and simmer for 10 minutes or until slightly thick. Transfer to a 13 x 9-inch baking dish coated with cooking spray. Bake at 300 for 45 minutes or until thick.
