Weanie Bean Delight

Doug's brother is a great gardener and an even better cook! This is my most favorite of all his recipes! It's quick and simple and oh, so good! Especially on a busy day! Toss everything in the crockpot and anticipate a tasty dinner all day long!

Cut up a bag of Little Smokies into different size chunks. Fry them until brown. Saute a chopped onion and 2-3 peppers, for color. (Red and yellow peppers add some kick!) Add them and the following to crock pot:

1 large can Pork and Beans
1 can Black Beans
1 Kidney Beans
1 can of Pinto Beans
1 can Black-eyed Peas
Half bottle honey barbeque sauce
1 cup (half a 16oz can) crushed pineapple (I use the whole can)
small can tomato sauce
can of corn (I use frozen)
½ cup brown sugar (I add more, don’t tell my husband, Mr. Nutrition)
1 tbsp. Basil

Simmer til serve. (I'm not a big fan of kidney beans, so I just use another kind. Any beans will do the trick, but the different beans make it more colorful.) Serve with cheese and crackers and you've got one tasty meal! Enjoy!

I love a lot of your recipes and have made many that have become some of our favorites. Can't wait to try this beanie one! But ... I have a question ... why do you not put the "size" of the "cans" when you say "one" can of something?? I've noticed many times your recipes don't specify quantities when it comes to the ingredients. Am I the only one who wonders sometimes whether a regular can to you is a small can to me or vice versa?? I know sometimes it probably doesn't matter .. but when someone says a "package" of jello ... they come in two sizes ... and I have been wrong before when buying a "package" that wasn't the "right" size. Just thought I'd mention this as it may be something you'd like to consider when posting recipes :) Thanks!
