My Dad is a man of simple tastes. Not that he likes things boring! He always chided my sisters and I for getting “just pepperoni” on our pizza when we were kids. What sort of lunatics don’t get olives and peppers and mushrooms? Well, my sisters and I obviously. BUT the truth is that the easiest way to please him was to simply make him a grilled cheese sandwich. And man, if you thought to put some spicy mustard, pickled jalapeños or olives in it. WELL, clearly there was a culinary GOD in the house. This recipe is what my Dad considers the most satisfying, bang for your buck and for your time. That is, if you don’t have a daughter around to cajole into making you a grilled cheese sandwich. That’s always plan A of course. Love you Dad!

Ingredients
  • 2 tsp chipotle chile sauce en adobo (or any chile sauce
  • 2 cans baked beans (27 oz)
  • 2 Tbsp mustard
  • 2 Tbsp molasses or brown sugar
Instructions
  1. If you're using the chipotle en adobo, chop it finely to be sure the spice will be evenly distributed.
  2. Mix all the ingredients into a pot and heat on the stove until the beans are warmed through. Give it a stir and serve. Or do it all in the microwave, it works just as well!
  3. Serve with rice, or just in a bowl. For an English-style breakfast, try spreading the beans over toast. Or throw them into a burrito, or scramble them with eggs, or stir-fry with onions and bell pepper.
