Ingredients
  • 4 cups strawberries (about 1 pound), hulled
  • 4 teaspoons vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup ketchup
  • 1/4 cup strawberry jam
  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons blackstrap molasses
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 1 canned chipotle chile in adobo, chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, grated
  • 1/2 cup finely diced onions
  • 1/2 cup finely diced red bell peppers
  • Two 15-ounce cans pinto bean, rinsed and drained
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley, for garnish
Directions
  • Special equipment: wooden or metal skewers

  • Preheat a charcoal or gas grill to medium-high heat.

  • Skewer the strawberries and coat with 2 teaspoons of the vegetable oil. Grill on all sides, 1 1/2 minutes total.

  • In a medium saucepan, combine the strawberries, ketchup, jam, balsamic vinegar, molasses, soy sauce, mustard, chiles and garlic. Cook over medium-low heat until the strawberries start to break down and all the ingredients combine, about 15 minutes.

  • Preheat the oven to 300 degrees F.

  • Using an immersion blender, blend the strawberry mixture until smooth. Continue to cook until the mixture is reduced by a third, about 15 minutes. This will yield about 2 cups sauce.

  • In a medium cast-iron skillet, heat the remaining 2 teaspoons oil. Add the onions and bell peppers and saute until soft, about 4 minutes. Add the beans and 1 1/2 cups of the sauce. Put the skillet in the oven and cook until the sauce thickens, about 25 minutes. Garnish with parsley and serve.
