Baked Beans

I got this recipe from Harold’s cousin.  The original recipe calls for salt, but we do not put it in.  This will fill up my big crock pot. {print recipe}

Baked Beans

1 pound ground beef

1/2 pound bacon, diced

1 onion, diced

2 stalks celery, diced

4 cans pork and beans (15 ounces)

2 cups red kidney beans (or two cans of beans, drained)

1 cup black beans (or one can of beans, drained)

2 cups ketchup

1/2 cup brown sugar

1 Tablespoon liquid smoke

6 Tablespoons white vinegar

dash of pepper

If you are using dried beans, cook your beans up ahead of time.  I try to do mine the night before so they are ready to go in the morning.  Brown your ground beef, onions, and celery.  Cook your bacon in a separate pan and drain.  Combine all ingredients in the crock pot.  Turn it to low and cook for 4 – 7 hours.
