Bunkhouse Beans

Sorry, no picture - running out the door once again and didn't take the time to stop for my camera! This was a great side dish for the potluck that I went too... Although we didn't have burgers or hot dogs like I was thinking we were going to when I planned this side dish it still went well with the shredded turkey that we had. I like that it was not your normal cold salad for the potluck and it was super easy to throw together the night before and plug in the next day! I chose to bump it up a notch with the jalapeno and also throw in the brown sugar for a sweeter taste... it was delicious!

Bunkhouse Beans
(recipe found on justapinch.com)

1 cup salsa
2/3 cup barbecue sauce
1 whole sweet onion, chopped
2 cans (28 ounces each) pork and beans
1 can (15 ounces) chili beans
1 can black beans, rinsed and drained
4 sausage links, kielbasa, bacon (cooked and drained), or other meat of choice
1 jalapeno pepper, chopped, optional (for those who like it spicy)
2/3 cup brown sugar, optional (for those who like their baked beans on the sweeter side)

Combine all ingredients in a slow cooker, stir to combine, set on low for 6-8 hours stirring occasionally (if you are able). When mixture has thickened and is hot and bubbly, it is ready to eat!
