4 15.5ozcans beans drained - I used kidneyblack, cannelloni and; garbanzo beans, but don't be limited by that. Use your favorite beans!
1 28ozcrushed tomatoes
1/2lbspicy italian sausage
Chop the bacon and sausage cook on the stove until the fat is rendered from the bacon and the sausage is well browned and crumbled. Remove the bacon & sausage and drain on a paper towel to remove excess fat.
While the meat is cooking chop the onion and peppers.
Open and drain all of the cans of beans and pour it into a slow cooker. Add the remaining ingredients; crushed tomatoes, barbecue sauce, brown sugar, dry mustard, onions & peppers. Add the sausage & bacon and mix to combine.
Cover tightly, set your slow cooker on low and cook on low heat for 7-8 hours.
If you make this on the stove, complete all of the above and place into a heavy bottom pot. Turn on low and allow to cook on the stove for 1 hour 30 minutes. You can also place these in the oven and slow cook them at 300 degrees for two hours. Use whichever method you'd prefer.
Simple and delicious! Great for a cookout or game day and such an easy and fabulous side dish!
