  • 1 pound ground beef 90% lean *
  • 1 pound bacon
  • 1 medium yellow onion chopped
  • 1 28-oz can baked beans (I used Bush's Original)
  • 1 15-oz can pork and beans
  • 2 30-oz cans black beans drained and rinsed
  • 1 cup barbecue sauce I used Sweet Baby Rays
  • 1/4 cup yellow mustard
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce


  • Brown the ground beef in a large skillet. Remove to a large bowl and discard the fat.
  • In the same skillet, cook the bacon. You can either chop it beforehand or crumble it afterward. Remove to a paper-towel lined plate. Discard all but 1 tablespoon of bacon grease from the pan.
  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
  • Saute the onions until they are translucent, about 5-8 minutes.
  • in a large bowl, combine ground beef, bacon, onions, baked beans, pork and beans, black beans, barbecue sauce, mustard, and Worcestershire sauce. Taste it. Add more BBQ sauce if you want.
  • Spread the beans into a 9x13 inch pan. Bake at 400 for 30 minutes.
  • Turn the oven down to 350 and cover the beans with foil. Bake for another 20-30 minutes.
  • I like mine extra crispy on top, so I broil them for a couple minutes, but that's not necessary unless you like slightly burned beans. (I mean who doesn't.) Serve hot!


*Use 90%, otherwise your beans will end up greasy.
