  • 8 bacon slices cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 sweet onion finely diced
  • 1/2 red bell pepper cleaned and cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1/2 yellow bell pepper cleaned and cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 4 cloves garlic minced
  • 2 cans 15 oz baked beans
  • 2 cans 15 oz red kidney beans, drained and rinsed


  • 3/4 cup ketchup
  • 2 tablespoons sweet chili sauce
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tablespoon liquid smoke optional
  • 1 tablespoon white vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon yellow mustard
  • 2 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 1 tablespoon smoked paprika
  • 1 cup BBQ sauce we used with bourbon based
  • 1 can 4 oz diced green chiles, optional keep in mind they are spicy

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Lightly grease a 9x13 inch baking dish or a large casserole dish and set aside.
  3. Combine all the "SAUCE" ingredients in a bowl, stir well and set aside.
  4. Place a large skillet over medium-high heat and once hot, cook the bacon in batches. Add just enough to cover the bottom of the pan. Cook on both sides for 3-4 minutes, or until crispy. Remove from the pan and set aside.
  5. Drain the fat leaving in about 2 tablespoons. Add the onion and garlic. Cook until soft. Add the chopped bell peppers and cook for 5 minutes, or until just tender.
  6. Add the beans to a large bowl, add the mixed Sauce, add the bacon, and the sauteed veggies. Stir to combine well.
  7. Transfer to the prepared baking dish. Cover with foil and bake for one hour.
