YIELD: 4 people
ACTIVE TIME: 16 minutes
TOTAL TIME: 24 minutes


  • 1 can (21.5 ounces) Bush’s® Honey Chipotle Grillin’ Beans®
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 3 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon plus 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 large (9 oz.) red bell pepper, finely diced
  • 3/4 cup yellow onion, finely chopped
  • 1/8 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/8 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 4 (4-ounce) chicken sausages of choice
  • 4 hot dog buns
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • Dijon mustard, for serving


  1. In a medium saucepan, bring water, vinegar, sugar and salt to a boil. Add bell pepper, onion, thyme and red pepper flakes; reduce to a simmer and cook, stirring occasionally, until liquid is mostly evaporated, 10-12 minutes. Remove from the heat.
  2. While relish is cooking, prepare a grill or grill pan for medium-high heat; lightly oil grate. Grill sausages, turning occasionally, until cooked through, 12-14 minutes.
  3. When sausages are close to ready, brush insides of hot dog buns with butter, then grill, buttered-side down, until to lightly toasted, 2-3 minutes.
  4. Place sausages in toasted buns; spread with mustard. Top with pickled pepper and onion relish and Bush’s® Honey Chipotle Grillin’ Beans®. Serve any remaining beans and relish on the side.
