Crockpot "Baked" Beans

Yum, yum, yum! And super easy, too. What else is there to say?

3 cups dried beans, whatever variety you like
8 cups water
1 package bacon
2 small onions
2 tsp dried mustard
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
2 small serrano peppers (optional)
1/4 cup tomato paste
1/4 cup brown sugar
3/8 cup molasses
2 Tbs ketchup
1 tsp ground pepper
1 1/2 tsp kosher salt


1. The night before, put the beans and water in the crockpot. Cook over low heat overnight.

2. In the morning, drain off excess water. Check the beans to see how soft they are. If they aren't done yet, increase crockpot heat to high.

3. Chop the bacon and onion and cook on the stovetop until the bacon is fully cooked. Add to the beans.

4. Add remaining ingredients and continue cooking. "Baked" beans will be ready in time for lunch.

    Turned out very good. I didn't add onions, but I must have added a bit more hot stuff than the recipe called for (some beans I used had some chili sauce added from the time you were here & frozen). Alan thought they were great!

    I represent www.ClassicalConnect.com, a virtual concert hall and the biggest searchable collection of classical music on the Internet.

    All our performances are either uploaded by professional musicians or sent to us by those who own legal rights for those performances. We feature over 2000 performances of classical music masterpieces and that number is constantly growing.

    I came across your site and thought you might be interested in either exchanging links, or finding some other mutually beneficial opportunities. I am open to your suggestions and look forward to your reply.
