A variety of colorful beans slow simmered in a sweet and tangy sauce with ground beef and bacon.
In a medium sized skillet, fry the bacon until crisp. Then add the ground beef, onion and green pepper and cook until the ground beef is well browned. Drain off the fat and add the meat mixture to a 4-6 quart slow cooker.
Add the undrained pork and beans to the slow cooker along with the rest of the drained and rinsed beans.
Stir in the ketchup, brown sugar, vinegar, mustard and liquid smoke. Cover and cook on low for 4-5 hours.
To make these beans on the stove top, simply prepare in the same way, adding the ingredients instead to a large pot and simmering for 25-30 minutes.
