      Excellent! This dish is hearty and rich. I didn't feel like whipping out the dutch oven, so I just made it on the stove top and stirred it every few minutes as it simmered. Not that it needed any extra, but I love bacon, so I used 6 slices of chopped bacon rather than 4. This recipe would be perfect for a cold rainy night, or even a camping trip.

      this is an excellent recipe which I have used for years on scout trips and family gatherings. It works great in a dutch oven or slow cooker. I do a slightly different variation: I add 1 large onion, 1Tb Cinnamon, 1 Tb Nutmeg, 1 Tb curry, with 1 Tb sugar to blend the spices.

      These beans were very good. I served with Kittencal's Crock Pot Beef Chuck Barbecue and Chef #610952's Kfc Cole Slaw Top Secret. For the dry red pepper I used 1/8 tsp of red pepper flakes, thick sliced bacon, and petite diced tomatoes. After 45 minutes the beans looked like they could cook a bit longer so I simmered another 1/2 hour. Nice smokey flavor with just enough zip to make the flavorful and not overly spicy. Thank you for helping us have a wonderful Mother's Day dinner.
