    Cook bacon in large skillet over medium heat until crisp. Remove bacon from skillet; drain on paper towels.

    In 4 to 5-quart slow cooker, combine all remaining ingredients; mix gently. Crumble bacon; sprinkle over bean mixture.
  • 3
    Cover; cook on low setting for 4 to 6 hours.

  • Use chopped frozen onion, measured directly from the package, in place of freshly chopped onion. Or, try instant dried or powdered onion; 2 tablespoons of dried minced onion or 1 tablespoon onion powder equals ½ cup of chopped onion.
  • Rinse canned beans well to remove any starchy liquid and excess salt. Drain the rinsed beans thoroughly.
  • For more summer barbecue spirit, add 1/2 cup of dark beer to the beans before cooking.
