Recipe from my mother-in-law. Always a hit at parties...I make it especially in the winter months. It's like chili except sweet instead of spicy. My mil uses 1 cup chopped celery instead of green bell pepper, but I prefer the green bell pepper. I'm guessing on the number of servings. It makes a huge pot of beans, but I've never actually counted out servings, so it might actually end up being more servings than what I've listed.
