This recipe is for bean lovers. I always make this at every holiday gathering at my house. My nephew always requests this.

Not much fuss to this and it just has a great flavor. The combination of all the beans and the sauce is perfect.

One Pot Dinner

1 lb hamburger, brown

3/4 bacon cut up (I use Hormel real bacon bits)

1 cup diced onions

2 cans of pork & beans

1 can lima beans, drained (I use frozen lima beans)

1 can kidney beans, drained

1 cup ketchup

1/2 cup brown sugar

1 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon pepper

3 tablespoons white vinegar

1. Mix all ingredients in a large bowl.

2. Pour into crock pot and cook on low for four to six hours. Depending on your crock pot, just watch it closely and don’t overcook it, because it can go dry. You can also adjust the sugar in this to your taste. I happen to like it sweet and tend to add just a bit more.

3. Enjoy!
