The story behind this dish is that once you eat it, you end up craving it. It works as a main dish or a side dish. And you can make it in the slow cooker or make on the stove. This is also a pantry meal, as most of the ingredients will already be in your pantry. And if you cook it on the stove, it only takes 30 minutes.
- 1 can (16 oz.) red kidney beans, undrained
- 1 can (16 – 28 oz.) baked beans, undrained (I use vegetarian)
- 1 can (16 oz.) butter beans, undrained
- 4 to 6 hot dogs, sliced into small rounds
- 2 tablespoons dried chopped onion
- 1 heaping tablespoon prepared mustard
- 1/2 cup ketchup
- 3/4 cup brown sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
Combine all of the ingredients in a 5 to 6-quart slow cooker or Dutch oven.
If using a slow cooker: Cover and seal the pot and cook until thick and bubbly, 7 to 8 hours on low, 3 to 4 hours on high.
If using a Dutch oven: Cook over medium heat, stirring often, until the mixture begins to bubble. Reduce the heat to low and simmer, uncovered, until thick, about 30 minutes.
Serves 4 to 6.
