Cheddar Beer Weenies Crockpot Recipe

Cheddar Beer Weenies Crockpot Recipe

Ingredients needed:

* 14 to 16-ounce package of beef cocktail wieners
* 12 to 16 slices of bacon, cut crosswise into thirds
* 2 tablespoons of butter
* 1 cup of finely chopped onion (1 large)
* 2 cloves of garlic, minced
* 1 cup of beer
* 1/2 of a 16-ounce jar (about 3/4 cup) cheddar pasta sauce or one can of condensed cheddar cheese soup
* 1 teaspoon of bottled hot pepper sauce, such as Cholula brand
* 1/2 teaspoon of chili powder

Preparation steps:

* Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a 15x10x1-inch baking pan with foil or parchment paper. Tightly wrap each cocktail wiener in a piece of the bacon; secure with a wooden toothpick. Place in the prepared banking pan. Bake for 35 minutes or until bacon is browned and slightly crisp; cool slightly. Remove and discard toothpicks.
* Meanwhile, for sauce, in a medium saucepan heat butter over medium heat until melted. Add onion and garlic; cook for 5 to 8 minutes or until onion is tender, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat. Stir in beer, pasta sauce, hot pepper sauce, and chili powder.
* In a small crockpot, combine cocktail wieners and sauce. Cover and cook on low for 4 1/2 hours. Serve immediately or keep warm, covered, on warm or low heat setting for up to 2 hours.
