I found this recipe online after searching for quite a while. These beans are the recipe from Love's restaurant that is no longer in West Covina that I loved so much as a kid. This recipe was taken from a previous employee at Love's. It's spot on!
Combine all ingredients in bean pot or crockpot with lid, mix well. I used a pyrex 13 x 9 or bigger which worked fine too.
Cover with foil or lid and bake at 400 degrees F for 1 hour for thin bean mixture, or 1 1/2 to 2 hours for thicker bean mixture.
Sprinkle with crumbled bacon bits to serve if desired.
*Special tip that a reviewer wrote: I tested the recipe,added some fried bacon and the left over bacon drippings, and smoked the beans for four hours on my Traeger Pellet Smoker. The recipe was spot on, even the chile sauce (Hienz Chili) was right. It was like being at Love's all over again.
