Janette's Recipes


Barbecue Bean Wellington


1 (15 ounce) fat-free baked beans, drained
1/2 jalapeno, seeded and finely chopped
½ medium sweet onion, finely chopped
3 tablespoons barbecue sauce
Cooking spray
1 ( 1 lb .3 ounce can) reduced fat biscuits, such as Pillsbury Grand

Special equipment:  large muffin tin (approximately 12.5 x 8.5 x 1.75-in. )

Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees.

In a medium bowl, combine the beans, jalapeno, onion and barbecue sauce.  Stir until fully mixed.

Spray the muffin tin with vegetable spray.  Press each piece of biscuit dough into one of the muffin cups so that the dough fits in the cup and begins coming up the sides (almost like a bread bowl).  Divide the barbecue bean mixture among the muffin cups over the dough.  Bake for 17 - 20 minutes or until golden brown.  Serve immediately.
