These tangy beans travel well—transport in the same pot they’re cooked in and they’ll stay hot for serving.

Ingredients

1/2
lb bacon, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
1
medium onion, chopped (1/2 cup)
1
cup ketchup
1/2
cup packed brown sugar
1/4
cup mild-flavor (light) molasses
1
tablespoon cider vinegar
1
teaspoon ground mustard
2
cans (15.5 oz each) great northern beans, drained, rinsed
2
cans (15 oz each) black beans, drained, 1/2 cup liquid reserved

Directions

  • 1 In 10-inch skillet, cook bacon and onion over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until bacon is crisp and onions are tender; drain.
  • 2 In 3 1/2- to 4-quart slow cooker, mix bacon, onion and remaining ingredients, including reserved liquid. Cover; cook on Low heat setting 3 to 4 hours.

Expert Tips

A tablespoon of cooked bacon pieces can be saved to garnish the top of beans at serving time.

Decrease the brown sugar to 1/4 cup if you prefer beans that are less sweet.
