I like that this recipe is very adaptable. I don't care for green pepper so substitute red pepper. Today added a yellow pepper because I was out of corn. Substituted celery seed for celery (my fridge froze my celery). Also also reconstituted some dehydrated mushrooms and added them.
I rarely have vegetarian baked beans so just use navy or great northern and add some ketchup, yellow mustard and brown sugar.
If I don't have black bean soup on hand, I just put the drained beans in my bullet blender with a little water and cumin powder, then add to crock pot after blended.
It seems you can play around with whatever vegetables that suit your taste or have on hand. I've added carrots in the past too.
Garnishes I like, shredded cheddar, chopped red onion and Greek yogurt (or sour cream).
This has always been a hit with everyone I serve it to.
