My husband loves Hobo Beans! Our recipes are so similar I decided to just mention the slight differences instead of posting another. I use 1tbs. less vinegar, 1 cup less onions, & 1/2 cup less ketchup. Then I add a 1/2 cup more of brown sugar, 1/4 cup of molasses, & 2 cans of pinto beans. Thanks for posting! =)

Made this for a potluck attended by 18 people. Positive comments. Easy to prepare for a group. Could not find 10 oz. beans so I drained some of the liquid from the larger cans that I used.
