I came up with these years ago and the recipe changes almost every time. This is a good base to start with. You can add about anything you want to this base
Serves: 8
  • 1 lb bacon, diced
  • 1 lb hamburger
  • 1 yellow onion, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • ½ C molasses
  • ½ C brown sugar
  • ½ C Sweet Baby Ray’s BBQ Sauce (You can probably use a different brand, but why?)
  • 1 t chili powder
  • 2 T pepper sauce (I like Chipotle Tobasco but you can use about anything)
  • 4 cans beans (I usually use a can of black, 2 cans of kidney and a can of pintos)
  1. Cook bacon until browned.
  2. Add hamburger and brown
  3. When meat is ready, add onion and garlic.
  4. Cook for about 5 minutes.
  5. Put meat mixture into crockpot and add remaining ingredients
  6. Cook in crockpot on high for about 4 hours, low for 6 to 8 hours
