Nothing says love like a Dutch oven full of tangy Southern Baked Beans! Get out your Dutch oven or cast iron skillet and let's go!
1. Brown 1/2 lb. of good bacon that's been snipped into small sections with kitchen scissors or a knife.
2. Add 1/2 bell pepper, chopped and 1/2 chopped onion to the bacon grease. Cook until onion is transparent. Keep scraping the browned bits from the bottom.
3. Add 1 1/2 C ketchup and 1 1/2 TBSP mustard. Mix.
4. Add brown sugar to taste (I use about 1 C). Mix well. Let simmer on low. Add 1 large can of Pork and Beans and leave on until heated through.
