baked beans for a crowd.... or 2

my assignment:
baked beans for about 150 people....

i called the booth [my mom]
knowing she would have the recipe for a crowd.

she did.
[sorry mom, i changed it just a bit...]

baked beans for 25
[kicked in the pants]

1 #10 can of pork and beans
1 lb of bacon (yes, a pound)
1 large yellow onion
1 large green bell pepper
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 cup ketchup
enough tapatio (or hot sauce of your choice)
to make you shimmy...

[i just added the heat and lessoned the sugar and grease, for my taste]

the bacon gets cut in 1 in strips and crisped up.
i drained most of the fat, 
but kept just a little to saute both the finely chopped onion and pepper...

it goes in a slow cooker or roaster oven with all the rest o the goods 
for about 3 hours on lowish.

big hit, mom.
lucky we had a little leftover to eat again today!!
