The classic baked beans. It’s like the “must have” in every pantry. This is similar to my baked beans in meat balls dish but different in other ways. I added heaps more chili to this and some chopped onions as well. Lean Italian sausages were used to lower the fat content. Hubby had this with rice but I could almost lick my bowl clean without any carbs (i guess baked beans are so full of protein?).
It’s the sort of dish that appear in our high school’s canteen frequently. Probably with mince meat than sausages but certainly reminded me of those good times in our school canteen!
Chili Baked Beans with Sausages (around 5 portions)
1 packet of lean sausages. I used Woolworths Extra Lean Italian Sausages diced
1 red onion chopped finely
1 tablespoon of garlic minced
3 red chilies chopped
2 cans of heinz baked beans salt reduced
1/2 cup of water
around 2 tablespoon of tomato paste
Fry onion and garlic. Cook up the diced sausages till browned. Add in the baked beans, water and tomato paste. Simmer for around 10 minutes. Served with some veges and rice.
