- Most of the drippings are from the bacon. Since the beans already have jalapenos and pablano peppers in it anyway, I wouldn't think that much of the heat would come from the drippings. I'll admit, we've never had a bad batch of beans cooking them this way!
We made them in Missouri last year for a family reunion and got a LOT of compliments. My mom kept commenting on how spicy they were and have to mix them with some sweet "pork-n-beans" baked beans that my aunt made. Look at the pictures above... The rib meat (pork brisket) on the paper plate is what we save for the beans. One of the comments made at the family reunion when the two pots of baked beans were compared was, "Oh, your beans were the ones with all the good stuff in them!" I sorta felt sorry for my aunt because she was sitting right next to me.Charred
- My wife likes spicy foods but I suppose Dragon Salt might be a little too spicy as I see her using it. However, several of my in-laws, my boys, and myself go through plenty of it. If you like it on the HOT side you'll enjoy Dragon Salt.
But be warned... If you smell it while you are shaking it on you food, THEN, you will sneeze!
My tongue can tolerate it but my nasal passage can NOT. Some day I may give the hotter peppers a try.Cactus
- Never claimed to be that smart!
I just cook food that my family and I like and share it with y'all hoping you do too. Thanks for the kind words.
