I've made this recipe about a dozen times before but never doubled it until yesterday. I found that adding the liquid from all 4 cans of kidney and butter beans makes it too soupy. It's usually much thicker. If I double it again I will proabably try omitting the liquid from one or two cans of beans. Regardless it still tasted delicious and everyone loved it! I cooked it in a 6-qt. crock pot for 3 hours on high.

Very good recipe-meat definately played the starring role in this dish. I followed the recipes exactly and this was a big hit. This recipe is also very generous in it's portion size and could very well serve as a main dish. I will definately make this again and maybe add another can of beans to throw off the abundnace of meat:)

I just got back from a potluck that I took this dish to. I didn't have any leftovers to bring home and a couple folks asked for the recipe so it's a keeper. I did add about 1 tbsp.of Worcestershire Sauce and a pinch of red pepper flakes. Also was out of dry mustard so I used about 1 tbsp. regular yellow mustard instead.

This worked pretty well and was really easy. It's sort of like chunky sloppy joes. I put it in the crock pot for two hours on high but it could've used more. I also would've used less brown sugar since it was pretty sweet from the baked beans.

Great dish for a one-pot dinner. I also like to add some chopped celery.

This was very good and went together quickly. I used bbq baked beans and cannellini in place of the butter beans. I drained the kidney beans and cannellini and added half a beer to make up for the lost liquid. I cooked it in in my crockpot on high for 2 hours (I think another hour would have been better). My crockpot was scraped clean at the neighborhood potluck so I guess it was a hit!

I have used a similair recipe and had lost it so when I found this one I thought I would try it again. I would give it 5 but I used green beans instead of butter and didnt use nearly that much brown sugar. Threw it all in a crock pot for a couple of hours and it was good to go. This one is a keeper.

Awesome! Only variation is that I didn't have any ketsup so I used half spaghetti sause and half BBQ sauce. Two people at the potluck asked for the recipe for their kid's graduation parties. A big hit.
