1 lb. dry Great Northern beans, cooked (do not drain)
1/2 lb. ground beef
1 red or yellow bell pepper, chopped
1 medium onion, chopped
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup molasses
salt and pepper to taste
Put the beans in a crock-pot along with the cooking liquid.
Cook the beef, onion and bell pepper in a saucepan until beef is no longer pink and the onions are opaque. Stir the beef mixture into the beans. Add the brown sugar, molasses, salt and pepper to the crock-pot. Stir. Cook on high 4 hours. Serve with hot sauce, if desired and some fresh cornbread.
My kids absolutely love this one and my husband does, too!
