tiny splash of peanut oil
2 ounces of cubed pancetta (half the box that TJ's had)
1/2 sweet onion, diced
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 jalapeno, minced
1 can of Trader Joes Organic Baked Beans
1 heaping tsp chipotle sauce or 1 chipotle minced
splash of water
salt and pepper
2 scallions, chopped
In a sauce pan, heat the little amount of oil and add the pancetta, brown to render the fat. Remove with a slotted spoon.
Add the onion, garlic and jalapeno and sweat on medium heat. Season with a bit of salt and pepper.
Add the beans into the pan with all the sauce, add the chipotle and a splash of water. Add back in the pancetta and let reduce on low to medium low heat for 7-10 minutes and taste for seasoning. Garnish with the scallions and cilantro if you have it.
