Ingredients

  • 4 slices bacon, diced
  • 1 cup diced onions
  • 1/2 green bell pepper, diced
  • Two 28-ounce cans pork and beans
  • 1/4 cup ketchup

  • 3 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons hot sauce
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons dry mustard
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • Salt
  • Chopped red onions, for serving

Directions
