What is Aioli sauce, you ask? It’s simply a mayonnaise-based sauce that has LOTS of flavor. Make this recipe if you have the time. Well, it actually takes very little time to make. Here it is:

Aioli Sauce

2 garlic cloves
1/2 cup roasted red bell peppers, drained, patted dry
1/3 cup mayonnaise (I use light)
2 TB olive oil
Salt & pepper, to taste

Finely chop the garlic (in a food processor if you have one, if not, try it in a blender). Add the peppers and blend until almost smooth. Blend in the mayo. With the machine running, blend in the oil. Season the aioli, to taste, with salt and pepper. Transfer the aioli to a small bowl or squeeze bottle (like a mustard or ketchup bottle). This can be made 2 days ahead. Cover & refrigerate.

Homemade BBQ Beans

4 cups dry pinto beans
1 pound thick-cut bacon, cut into pieces
2 whole green bell peppers, diced
1 whole onion, diced
1 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup ketchup
2 tablespoons mustard
1 tablespoon chili powder, optional
2 teaspoons salt, more to taste
2 teaspoons black pepper, more to taste
4 cloves garlic, minced

Rinse the beans under cold water, sorting out any rocks/particles. Cook beans according to package directions in salty water until 3/4 doneness.

When beans are 3/4 done, in a heavy pot saute the bacon pieces until halfway cooked and the fat is rendered. Add the green peppers and onions to the pot and cook until starting to get brown, about 3 minutes. Add the beans and cover with water by 1 inch. Bring to a boil, and then add the brown sugar, ketchup, mustard, chili powder, salt, pepper and garlic. Reduce the heat to a simmer, place on the lid and cook until the beans are tender and the liquid is thick 3 to 4 hours.
