Absolutely delicious. I fry a couple pounds of bacon and three pounds. lean ground beef ahead and keep it in the freezer. Sure saves time next time.

My husband absolutely loved this (me, too)! Now I have to make it at least once a week for him. I cook the ground beef and onions, fry the bacon, mix everything together in the crock pot and let it cook. Great for hot, humid Florida days!!

My boys (4 & 1) call these chocolate beans. We love them. Wish I could rate it 10 stars

This is an excellent recipe. My family loves this. However, I really don't care for the kidney beans in it, so I double the pork & beans. I use more bacon than called for, I cooked 12 ozs. of bacon . I like this dish meaty! The sauce ingredients I doubled to make it saucier. I get nothing but rave reviews when I make this recipe. It's wonderful! :) Thanks!!
