This spicy favorite for backyard parties and picnics can be doubled easily. Great for alongside hamburgers, hot dogs or anything from the grill. Cut from the newspaper in 1962.
- 3 slices bacon, chopped
- 1 small onion, chopped
- 1 (20 ounce) can pork and beans in tomato sauce
- 1 tablespoon brown sugar
- 1 tablespoon cider vinegar
- 2 tablespoons catsup
- 1 pinch chili powder
- Fry the bacon until halfway done.
- Add the onion.
- When the onion is slightly browned, pour off almost all of the grease (or all of it if you're watching fat content), Add pork and beans, sugar, vinegar and catsup.
- Stir well, season with a pinch of chili powder.
- Pour mixture into ceramic bean pot or covered dish.
- Bake at 350 degrees one hour or until mixture is cooked down so that it's not too runny. You can also cook this mixture slowly on the stove, careful to stir occasionally so the beans won't burn. They'll cook down.
