Ingredients

1/4 lb
Sliced Bacon
3 can(s)
Whole Green Beans (14.5 oz each - do not drain liquid)
1/4
medium Onion, diced
1 tsp
Sugar
1/2 tsp
Salt
1/2 tsp
Pepper
3 can(s)
pinto beans (14.5 oz each - do not drain liquid)
3 can(s)
sliced potatoes (14.5 oz each - do not drain liquid) (Mom used real potatoes, but this is easier)

Directions Step-By-Step

1
In a two quart sauce pan on medium heat, cook bacon until lightly brown but not crisp. When bacon has browned add green beans. Add salt, sugar, pepper, and mix well. Place onion on top of green beans, cover with a lid and bring to a light boil. Turn heat down to low and simmer beans for 45 minutes. Cooking the green beans for 45 minutes on a very low simmer will blend the flavors.
