Root Beer Baked Beans
1 Can Baked Beans
1 Can Chili Beans
1 Can Great Northern Beans
1 Large Vidalia Sweet Onion, Sliced and diced
1/4 Cup White Vinegar
1/3 Cup Molasses
1/2 Cup BBQ Sauce
2 TBS Dry Mustard Spice
2 TBS Cajun Spices
1/3 Cup Brown Sugar
1 (12 Oz) Bottle Root Beer
1 Pound Thick Slice Bacon, diced and cooked to crispy
Chopped Green onions and Parsley For Garnish
1 small can of Tomato Paste if needed to thicken
In a large Crock Pot slow cooker, combine all the ingredients except the bacon and garnishes. Stir to combine.
Set on low and slow simmer covered for 8 hours, stirring occasionally.
Check thickness after 8 hours. The "gravy" should be thickened and coating the beans. If not, set on high, uncover and add a small can of tomato paste. Simmer on high until the gravy thickens.
Just before serving, stir in the chopped bacon, saving a few pieces to add as a garnish and finally, just before serving, top with the greens.
