Baked Beans

Beans beans they are good for your heart,
The more you eat,
The more you....
Well, you get the idea.
No self respecting southerner would ever have a cookout with out baked beans.
I swear there are as many baked beans recipes as there are beans.
I have never met a baked bean that I didn't like.
This is a good recipe, one of the best I have ever tried.
Now if you don't like peppers or perhaps allergic to bacon, then don't add it.
Honestly, I feel really sorry for you if you are allergic to bacon.
That would be a serious bummer.
Here in the south, bacon practically has its own food group.
So, if you have to skip the bacon do so,
But I cant guarantee it will taste just as good.
