This was easy to make and pretty close to the canned version my husband likes. NOTE: If you make this in a slow cooker, cook the beans first, then put the sauteed ingredients with them and let them cook overnight.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cover beans well with water. Boil.
  2. Add the salt and pepper. Simmer 2 hours.
  3. In a frying pan, saute the bacon, onion, garlic, seasonings, juice and ground beef. Add to the beans and cook another hour.
