I've made this recipe about a dozen times before, but never doubled it until yesterday. I found that adding the liquid from all 4 cans of kidney and butter beans makes it too soupy. It's usually much thicker. If I double it again, I will proabably try omitting the liquid from one or two cans of beans. Regardless, it still tasted delicious and everyone loved it! I cooked it in a 6-qt. crock pot for 3 hours on high.

It was just ok for me..Basically tasted like baked beans w/meat..My husband liked it so i am sure i will make it again

Very good recipe-meat definately played the starring role in this dish. I followed the recipes exactly and this was a big hit. This recipe is also very generous in it's portion size and could very well serve as a main dish. I will definately make this again and maybe add another can of beans to throw off the abundnace of meat:)

I just got back from a potluck that I took this dish to. I didn't have any leftovers to bring home and a couple folks asked for the recipe, so it's a keeper. I did add about 1 tbsp.of Worcestershire Sauce and a pinch of red pepper flakes. Also, was out of dry mustard so I used about 1 tbsp. regular yellow mustard instead.

This worked pretty well and was really easy. It's sort of like chunky sloppy joes. I put it in the crock pot for two hours on high but it could've used more. I also would've used less brown sugar, since it was pretty sweet from the baked beans.

This was so easy to make! Fry up the bacon, cook the meat and the onion in the same pan, dump in the rest and voila! I eyeballed the sugar, ketchup, mustard, etc...

This was very good, and went together quickly. I used bbq baked beans and cannellini in place of the butter beans. I drained the kidney beans and cannellini , and added half a beer to make up for the lost liquid. I cooked it in in my crockpot on high for 2 hours (I think another hour would have been better). My crockpot was scraped clean at the neighborhood potluck, so I guess it was a hit!

Great dish for a one-pot dinner. I also like to add some chopped celery.
