One 15-oz. can each of these beans: butter, northern, black, and light kidney beans
one 16-oz can crushed tomatoes
2 tablespoons prepared mustard
1 packet of onion soup mix
one 15-oz can of italian tomato sauce
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 red and 1 yellow pepper (chopped)
1 medium onion (chopped)
one 6-oz can of italian tomato paste
1 1/2 lbs. lean ground beef (cooked and drained)
1 package Hillshire Farms Little Smokies (each small smokie cut into thirds)
1/8 cup chili powder
2 teaspoon worchestershire sauce
1 teaspoon oregano
1/2 teaspoon pepper
3/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon cumin
1/4 cup chili sauce (optional)
splash of white zinfindel wine (optional)

Brown and drain the ground beef and Hillshire smokies separately. Saute the chopped peppers and onions in butter until soft and lightly browned. Drain the 4 cans of beans. In a very large bowl, combine all ingredients. Mix with your hands by lightly folding the ingredients. Do not use a spoon and mix only enough to combine. Over-handling makes mixture 'mushy'. Mixture will be relatively thick. Taste test and add extra spices, mustard, worchestershire or chili sauce to adjust flavor. Place bean mixture into a deep, large crock pot type dish. Cover with lid or foil. Bake at 350 degrees for 1 1/2 hrs, stirring every 30 minutes. You can divide the mixture into 2 smaller dishes, but reduce the cooking time by 15 minutes.

Personal Notes:
Fat boy beans can be served as a standalone dish or can be served on a bun like sloppy joes. Great as a leftover too.
