Sweet Baked Beans


             Are you going to a BBQ or potluck this upcoming Fourth Of July? If so, I have a
             great side dish for you. It truly goes perfect with everything and it will be the hit
                   of any party. It has a perfect blend of salty sweet and incredibly easy.


                                                           Sweet Baked Beans

                                                           2 ( 28 ounce ) baked beans
                                                           1 green bell pepper, diced
                                                           1 medium onion, diced
                                                           6 slices of bacon, diced
                                                           4 ounces ham, diced ( optional )
                                                           2 teaspoons chili powder
                                                           1/2 cup ketchup
                                                           3 tablespoons worcestershire sauce
                                                           3 teaspoons red wine vinegar
                                                           1/2 cup brown sugar
                                                           1 teaspoon garlic powder
                                                           a dash of cayenne pepper
                                                           salt and pepper ( optional )

          1) Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
          2) In a Dutch oven cook bacon until slightly cooked. Add onion and pepper cook
          until veggies are almost done but not mush.
          3) Season with chili powder, worcestershire sauce, vinegar, brown sugar, ketchup,
          garlic powder, salt and pepper.
          4) Cover and bake for 45 minutes to one hour.


I hope you all are enjoying the warm days of Summer.
