Recipe - Baked Beans

I came up with this recipe a little while ago and have been meaning to post it up. It's kind of a mix of various different baked bean recipes, and a bit of a BBQ sauce recipe thrown in. The chipotle is not important if you have good quality smoked paprika. Any meat products (bacon, Worcestershire Sauce, etc) can be removed, although not recommended.

Ingredients

1 to 1.5Kg Haricort/Navy Beans - soaked for 24hrs prior to cooking.
2x 400g Tins Tomatoes
4x Onion
4Tbsp Smoked Paprika
4Tbsp Sweet Paprika
4Tbsp Brown Sugar
4Tbsp Molasses
2x Green Chili
1/2c White Vinegar
1/2c Worcestershire Sauce
6 cloves garlic
250-400g bacon cubed (smoky, good quality)
1Tbsp sumac (optional)
small block of dark chocolate (chili choc if you can)
2Tbsp Chili Sauce (optional)
1 Chipotle Chilli (optional)
salt
pepper

Method

Saute 2 onions & Green Chilis in a little olive oil or butter.

Add to blender with tomatoes, brown sugar, molassas, paprika (both), garlic and some pepper.

Blend, add to large pot (big enough for beans & bacon), add vinegar & worcestershire sauce to pot. Cook over a medium heat for a few minutes.

When slightly thickened, add beans, bacon, remaining 2 onions, chocolate, chili sauce, Chipotle Chilli and Sumac if required.

Add 500ml of water and cook over a low heat for 8 to 10 hours. Regularly stir the beans (every 10-20 minutes) to stop them burning, add more water when the sauce starts to thicken. Add desired amount of salt. Cook until sauce has thickened.

Enjoy with some nice buttery toast.
