Baked Beans

This is one of my very favorite recipes - ever! It's a perfect side for a BBQ, and it makes so much that it's an easy go-to for potluck dinners.

2 medium cans pork & beans (or 3-4 soup can sized cans)
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 cup ketchup
1 lb. bacon
1 green bell pepper, diced
1 small onion, diced
1/4 cup molasses

Cook bacon and drain off the grease. Chop the pepper and onion, and mix all ingredients. Bake at 350 degrees, covered for 1 hour and then uncovered for 1-1.5 hours. If you are in a time crunch or your dish doesn't have a lid, you can also bake it uncovered for 1.5-2 hours (just watch it so that the beans don't dry out!).
