molasses, and mustard. The long baking time at a low temperature increases the flavor and thickens the saucy bean mixture.
Three kinds of beans—pinto, kidney, and black—are mixed together with molasses and brown sugar and spiced up with ground cloves
and allspice. Chorizo sausage and chipotle chili powder add the wonderful smokiness that makes these beans perfect for serving
with grilled meats.
