Billionaire's Franks and Beans

Rated as 4.22 out of 5 Stars

"Usually, franks and beans is made by opening up a couple cans of baked beans, and heating it up with some sliced hotdogs. Not exactly something you'd serve to visiting dignitaries. However, by adding some fresh veggies, plain beans, and high-quality beef hot dogs, we can achieve something much healthier, equally delicious, and every bit as comforting. Serve with buttered toast and Champagne."

  1. Lightly score hot dog skins from end to end on 4 sides. This helps keep them flat when they cook. Slice into 1/2-inch rounds.
  2. Melt butter in large pot over medium heat. Add onions, poblano pepper, celery, and cayenne pepper. Season with salt and pepper. Cook and stir until vegetables are soft and onions are translucent, 5 to 7 minutes.
  3. Stir in hot dog slices and cook until heated through and fat from hot dogs mixes with the butter, about 3 minutes. Add brown sugar, ketchup, mustard, Worcestershire sauce; pour in chicken broth. Stir in beans. Raise heat to bring mixture to a simmer; reduce heat to low and cook until flavors mix, about 30 minutes. While beans are cooking, use a wooden spoon to crush some of them against the side of the pot to help thicken the stew. If mixture gets too thick, add more broth.
  4. Just before serving, stir in chopped green onions.

I made no changes whatever. Used poblano pepper. Used beef franks from one of the mail order steak purveyors. Not quite Wagu, but reasonably close. Beats heck out of any other franks & beans! ...

The next time I will use three cans of cannellini beans and mashing the third can before adding also just two cups of chicken broth you can always add more plus cut the cayenne pepper in half

I had to make changes because I did not have fresh cayenne pepper or the peppper. I used a yellow pepper and cayenne pepper out of a jar. My family enjoyed the soup. I will make it again.

Hubby gave this a “10” on a scale of 1-10. He loved it and his favorite food is hot dogs. Easy, simple to put together, forgiving of adaptation and tasty. I made a couple of changes based on wha...

Oh my gosh, this is so good. Made with dry pinto beans, smoked beef kielbasa, ordinary prepared mustard, 2 c chicken broth. No poblano, cayenne, green onions. Zucchini instead of celery. No ...

Only change I made was to add yellow bell pepper I had in the fridge. Made this especially for my husband who loves hotdogs, and he really liked it - I preferred to just eat he bean soup part. ...

Simple and delicious! I made mine without the dogs and with vegetable stock for a vegan dish and it was wonderful! This will be added to my regulars.
