Mrs. Betty's Beans Galore

free of gluten, dairy/casein, soy, and corn

1/2 pound bacon (optional - I only use if it I have it -- last night I didn't have it!)

1 pound ground beef

1 medium onion, chopped

1/3 cup brown sugar (I only use 1-2 tablespoons)

1/4 cup white sugar (we leave this out)

1/4 cup ketchup

1/4 cup of your favorite gluten free barbecue sauce

1 teaspoon dry mustard

2 tablespoons molasses

1/2 teaspoon chili powder

1/2 teaspoon ground pepper

1 teaspoon salt

2 (15 oz.) cans pork & beans (I just use a 28 oz. can of baked beans)

1 (15 oz.) can lima beans

1 (15 oz.) can light red kidney beans (I use northern beans)

Stovetop Directions:

Fry bacon in a large dutch oven. Drain off grease, crumble bacon and set aside. Brown ground beef until it's cooked through and there is no pink showing. Add chopped onions and saute until soft -or- translucent. Add remaining ingredients to dutch oven. Cook beans galore over medium heat for about 15-20 minutes until completely heated through and simmering. You may need to stir often to prevent the beans from burning on the bottom. Serve hot with a nice green salad and gluten free french bread. (Of if you're like us, just eat a small bowl... it'll do ya for a few hours! This is a delicious and filling sweet & sour chili!)

Slow Cooker Directions:

Fry bacon in a large pan. Drain off grease, crumble bacon and set aside. Brown ground beef until it's cooked through and there is no pink showing. Add chopped onions and saute until soft -or- translucent. Add crumbled bacon, browned ground beef & onions, and all other ingredients to the slow cooker. Cook on high for 4 hours, or on low for 8 hours. Allow to cool a bit before eating.
