Unforgettable Baked Beans

When my son Madison, lived in San Antonio, Texas for two years he fell in love with Texas barbecue which includes baked beans.  So when he returned to Idaho, I made sure I helped him transition by baking this recipe and that makes them unforgettable!  It’s really a pretty simple recipe because you start with canned baked beans . . .  What?  Then you add all your own touches with pineapple, bacon, onion, green pepper, etc.  It takes time to simmer, but the more time you can allow the flavors to mingle the more unforgettable this dish becomes.  Perfect for your next summer barbecue.  So yummy!
