Family favorite crock-pot beans

This has always been my family's favorite. I can't show up at any faimly gathering without them. Any of the beans (other than the pork & beans) may be substituted or omitted.

Crock-Pot Beans

2 Large Cans Pork & Beans (32oz.) (NOT drained)
1 can (15oz) Kidney Beans (drained)
1 can (15oz) Garbonzo Beans (drained)
1 can (15oz) Lima Beans (drained)
1 Lb. Ground Beef (cooked & drained)
1/2 Lb. Bacon fried & crumbled
1 Large Onion (chopped & fried brown in bacon grease, drained)
3/4 cup Ketchup
1/4 cup Brown Sugar (packed)
4 Tablespoons Honey or Molasses
2 teaspoons (not more) Liquid Smoke (hickory)


Brown the Ground Beef, drain, place in crock-pot
Fry the Bacon, crumble, place in crock-pot
Fry the Onion in bacon grease until dark brown, drain, place in crock-pot
Place remaining ingredients in the crock-pot and stir gently.
COVER and cook on LOW for 8 hours.

Wow. Thatsalotta different beans.
That sounds like a great meal. I'll often cook some beans, add some meat to them and serve them on a couple slices of white bread. I'm going to give this a try. I think I'll go with the molasses instead of the honey.

Thanks CM.
Give us this day our daily bacon.

Would this still taste good with out pork? How about some turkey bacon?
I am challenged with the fatigue and lack of concentration that comes with Lupus. I joined this forum in hopes that I can get ideas for fast, easy and delicious things to eat.

Sure, Pauline. You can substitute turkey bacon for pork bacon.
