These tangy beans travel well—transport in the same pot they’re cooked in and they’ll stay hot for serving.
Updated Feb 4, 2010

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

Steps

  • 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.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

    A tablespoon of cooked bacon pieces can be saved to garnish the top of beans at serving time.
  • tip 2
    Decrease the brown sugar to 1/4 cup if you prefer beans that are less sweet.
