Smoky Campfire Beans

This side dish can be made entirely ahead and reheated at your campsite—almost as easy as cracking a can of beans, but way more delicious.

Ingredients

  • 1 tsp canola oil
  • 1 small onion , finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup fancy molasses
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 2 tbsp tomato paste
  • 2 tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp smoked paprika
  • 2 540-mL cans navy bean , drained and rinsed
  • 1/2 cup water

Directions

  • Heat a medium saucepan over medium. Add oil, then onion. Cook until onion is soft, about 4 min.
  • Stir in molasses, maple syrup, tomato paste, mustard, salt and paprika. Add beans and water. Boil, then reduce heat to medium-low. Simmer, covered, until beans are brown and sauce is thickened, about 25 min. Serve with Mexican Chicken Scallopini Fajitas.
