Party Beans With Corn Muffin

Diana Rattray
Use jalapeno peppers in these hearty beans if you like them hot and spicy. These are great for a party or gathering, served hot from the slow cooker.


  • 2 cans (28 ounces each) pork and beans
  • 2 cans pinto beans or red beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 pound lean ground beef, sirloin or round
  • 1 pound bulk pork sausage
  • 1 medium sweet onion, chopped
  • 1 medium red bell pepper, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 can (4 ounces) chopped mild green chile
  • 2 to 4 tablespoons drained jalapeno rings, chopped, or to taste, optional
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon spicy seasoning, such as Cajun or Creole seasoning
  • 1 cup barbecue sauce, your favorite


Pour beans into a 5 to 6-quart slow cooker.

In a large skillet, sauté the beef and pork sausage, breaking up with a spatula, until no longer pink. Drain well and stir into beans. In the same skillet in a small amount of oil as needed, sauté the onion over medium heat until lightly browned. Add red bell pepper and garlic; sauté, stirring for 1 minute longer. Stir the vegetables into the beans. Add chile, jalapenos, salt, seasoning, and barbecue sauce. Stir to blend. Cover and cook on HIGH for 3 to 4 hours, or LOW for 6 to 8 hours.
Serves 6 to 8.
