This recipe came from a bowling partner several years ago. It is by far the easiest and tastiest baked bean recipe I've ever used. It can easily be doubled or tripled to accommodate large gatherings. I find it handy because I usually have the ingredients on hand to throw it together.

Loved these beans! I partially cooked my bacon and then also sauteed the green pepper and onion in the bacon grease. Will definitely be making again!!

Great beans! The only thing I would do differently is drain the liquid from one of the cans of beans. They were a bit looser than I normally prefer. Thanks a bunch!

This is a very good recipe. I made this for a bbq this last weekend and it was a huge hit. The kids were even going back for seconds. I agree with other reviewers that the green pepper makes this special. Thank you for sharing with us.
