  1. Fry the bacon in a large skillet over medium heat until crisp, turning as needed. Remove to paper towels and drain off the grease from the skillet. Crumble the ground beef into the same skillet; cook and stir over medium heat until evenly browned. Add the onions and cook just until wilted.
  2. Transfer the beef, onions and bacon to a slow cooker, crumbling the bacon as you put it in. Pour in the baked beans and pinto beans. Stir in the ketchup, vinegar, brown sugar, white sugar and mustard powder. Cover and heat on Low setting for 5 to 6 hours before serving.

The first time I made it I served it in bread bowls. The second time I poured over baked potatoes. Terrific either way!

I ended up having to change a lot for this recipe to work for my sweets-averse family: 1) Eliminate the white sugar entirely. 2) Increase the mustard powder to 2.5 tsps, increase the vinegar to 3/4 cup, and add 1/2 cup of Worcestershire and 1/2 of a bottle of beer (I used Dos Equis--it's what was in the house). The beer makes the flavors "meld" together in a way that wasn't possible with the first rendition I made of this.

Great recipe. My family loved it. Next time I make it I am going to eliminate the white sugar from the recipe it was a little to sweet.

This was really good and the whole family loved it. I would have added a little less white sugar though.

Really good. Did not add white sugar, plenty sweet. Next time, I might wait to add the bacon until served or only add half because I like crunchy bacon.

I was looking for a quick recipe with hamburger so I didn't have to go to the store. I used Pinto Beans with Jalepeno, because I didn't have baked beans, and I used kidney beans. I added bell pepper and served over rice. It turned out really well.

I have been making these beans for a while now; that is, until I misplaced the recipe. I'm so glad to see it here. These are great! I get lots of requests for the recipe whenever I bring this dish to family get-togethers.

I told my company about this recipe when they arrived, and they didn't seem impressed. After they ate it, they were ALL asking for the recipe! Thanks for this yummy and hearty recipe!!
