1lb.dry white northern beans, soaked overnight
1smallonion, finely diced
Salt and pepper
3Tbsp.chipotle in adobo sauce, finely minced
12oz.thick cut maple bacon, cooked crisp and crumbled
Heat a skillet to medium heat. Add olive oil and saute the onion and garlic for 3-4 minutes, until translucent.
In a large mixing bowl, combine cooked onion and garlic, chicken stock, ketchup, barbeque sauce, salt, pepper, tomato paste, brown sugar, maple syrup, chipotle in adobo and bacon.
Combine beans and sauce mixture in a slow cooker and cook on low for 5-6 hours. Turn slow cooker to high and cook another 1-2 hours, stirring often. If they get too thick, add a bit of water until desired texture is reached (I didn't have to do this).
