I love baked beans.  They bring back great childhood memories of family cookouts in SC.  These were really really good.

1 Tbsp butter

1 1/4 cups chopped onion

3/4 cup chopped green bell pepper

2 garlic cloves, minced

1 cup ketchup

1/4 cup packed brown sugar

1/4 cup maple syrup

2 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce

2 tsp barbecue smoke seasoning (such as Hickory Liquid Smoke)

2 tsp prepared mustard

1 (16oz) can red beans, rinsed and drained

1 (15.8oz) can great northern beans, rinsed and drained

Melt butter in a medium saucepan over medium high heat.  Add onion, bell pepper, and garlic; saute 4 minutes.  Stir in ketchup and remaining ingredients; bring to a boil.  Reduce heat; simmer 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.  Yields 8 servings of 1/2 cup each for 3 pts or 5pts+
