Show Some Love Bacony Baked Beans
2 (28 oz) cans Bush’s original baked beans
1 large finely chopped sweet onion
1 large finely chopped green bell pepper
1 1/2 lb ground chuck
1/3 c ketchup (Try hot ketchup for a kick)
2 tbsp yellow mustard
4 tbsp light brown sugar
3 tbsp Texas Pete Sauce (or any hot sauce such as Tabasco)
6 slices hardwood smoked bacon
1 pkg Taco Bell taco seasoning
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Brown the ground chuck. Add taco seasoning while browning beef (do not add water). Drain beef & set aside.
Combine beans, onions, peppers, ketchup, mustard, brown sugar and Texas Pete into a 16 x 10” casserole dish.
Add seasoned beef to the bean casserole.
Place bacon on top of beans. Cover dish with aluminum foil, leaving a corner folded back for venting. Bake for approximately 1 hour. Remove foil and continue baking approx. 30 minutes or until bacon is brown and excess liquid has been cooked out.
Set on table and watch out…enjoy!
