1 teaspoon baking soda 

2 pounds cooked ham, sausage and bacon

2 pounds cooked ham, sausage and bacon 

1/2 cup ketchup 

1/2 cup molasses 

1 tablespoon yellow mustard 

2 teaspoons chili powder 

1 teaspoon garlic powder 

1 teaspoon white vinegar 

10 dashes hot sauce 

1 medium sweet onion, chopped 

Directions

  4. Place the cooked beans with some of their cooking liquid into a large cast iron Dutch oven. Add the meat, ketchup, molasses, mustard, chili powder, garlic powder, vinegar, hot sauce and onions, and stir well. Add some fresh water to the pot to loosen up the mixture.
