How to Make the Best Texas-Style Chuckwagon Beans (aka Meat Beans)

Would I like it if these beans had less sugar? Yes. And I'm not a big ranch-style bean fan. But, for whatever reason, these beans had me at "hello." 

You'll need:

Here's how you make them:

Cook bacon until almost crisp in a large pot.

Add the ground beef and onion and continue to cook until meat is browned.

Add the remaining ingredients.

Pour the beans into a 13x9-inch baking pan and bake at 350 degrees F for about 1 hour, uncovered.

Note: If you want juicier beans, you could add the pork and beans undrained. I use maple bacon.
