DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Brown beef, bacon and onion in a large skillet or dutch oven over medium heat.
  • Add beans and remaining ingredients, stirring to combine.
  • Pour into two (1 1/2- quart each) buttered baking dishes.
  • Bake uncovered for 45 minutes to 1 hour or until beans reach desired thickness (do not stir---a nice chewy, crispy crust will form, which is my favorite part--yum!).
  • Alternatively, place in a buttered crock pot and heat on low for about 4 hours, uncover during the last hour of cooking if you like your beans thick.
  • Freezes/reheats well.
