Works for me Wednesday

Once again it is Works for me Wednesday over at Shannon's place. For today, I have a recipe from my super Mother-in-Law, Janet, that is my hubbie's favorite thing to eat in the world. It is called Crockpot Beans and is tastes amazing, and couldn't be easier to throw in the Crockpot and enjoy when you get home. Here goes..

Crockpot Beans

Add to Crockpot:
1 can Lima beans drained
1 can Pinto beans drained
1 can Pork-n-Beans
1 can Kidney beans drained
1 1/2 lbs of ground beef drained
1 lb bacon (I use the quick kind you put in the microwave, about 10-12 slices) crumbled
1 small chopped onion
1 chopped Bell pepper (optional)

In a separate bowl mix:
1 tsp salt
1 tsp black pepper
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup ketchup
1/2 BBQ sauce (The BBQ sauce can really change the taste. If you like spicy, use spicy. I use honey bbq)
1/2 cup worcestershire sauce

Add the sauce mix to the crockpot and stir well. Cook on low for 5-6 hours. Serve over white rice. I hope you enjoy!

I have a similar recipe for calico beans, but this sounds even better! We love anything with whorsteshire & I love crock pot recipes. I used one for my WFMW today too!

We are a bean family. We had them last night. It's a crowd husband made the old joke to me- 'beans tonight bubble bath tomorrow' (I know it's horrible) What's so funny, is my 8 year old heard it AND got it. She laughed for 15 minutes! I'm gonna try your recipe!
