    In a large bowl, combine coffee powder, Worcestershire sauce, molasses, syrup, garlic, ginger, onion powder, mustard and chipotle or cayenne. Mix well into a sauce.

    Add all beans into the bowl and STIR CAREFULLY so as not to break up the beans. Turn beans into prepared baking dish.

    Bake at 350-degrees for 30-45 minutes, until bubbly. Sprinkle top with sharp cheddar cheese.

    Add sliced hot dogs before baking for an even heartier dish. If you don't like pintos or black beans, you can substitute another variety of canned beans.
