This was a HUGE hit at my daughter's party this summer and I'm sorry it's taken me so long to review the recipe. I made them vegetarian by using no meat baked beans and omitting the bacon and sausage. I did add a Tbl of Tabasco Chipotle Sauce to make up for the lost smokiness. I also used black-eyed peas and black beans instead of the kidney and butter beans, just because I like their textures better. I've taken to keeping all of these ingredients on hand, for future large group gatherings.....they are sooooo good! Thank you for such a wonderful and versatile recipe!

Makes a huge pot of wonderful smokey flavored beans. They do have a sweet taste, but no at all too sweet for my taste. I love these beans. I'm serving them with cornbead and fried "taters".
