Spicy-Sweet Ribs and Beans

Serves: 8

2 (16 oz.) cans pinto beans, drained
3-4 lbs. country-style pork ribs, fat trimmed
1 tsp. garlic powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. pepper
1 medium onion, chopped
1 (10.5 oz.) jar red jalapeno jelly
1 (18 oz.) bottle hickory-flavored barbecue sauce

Place beans in the bottom of crock pot. Sprinkle ribs with garlic powder, salt and pepper. Place ribs on broiler pan. Broil 5 1/2 inches from heat for 18-20 minutes or until browned, turning once. Add ribs to crock pot and sprinkle with onion. Combine jelly and barbecue sauce in a small saucepan; cook over low heat until jelly melts. Pour over ribs; stir gently. Cook on high for 5-6 hours or on low for 9-10 hours.

Tips: These ribs had a great flavor and were not too spicy so don't let the jalapeno jelly scary you away. I found the jelly in the jams & jelly section at the grocery store on the very top shelf. The meat should fall off the bone when it's ready so a slotted spoon is probably the best to remove both the meat and beans. You can also use one large can of pinto beans in place of the two smaller cans.
