Ingredients

1 c
salsa (however hot you like)
2/3 c
barbecue sauce
1
onion, diced & sauted
2 can(s)
pork & beans (28 oz)
1 can(s)
chili beans
1 can(s)
black beans (drained & rinsed)
1 lb
kielbasa, sliced and browned
1/2 lb
bacon (diced, cooked & drained)
1 small
jalapeno pepper, seeded & diced very fine
2/3 c
brown sugar

Step-By-Step

1Slice bacon into small pieces, brown in a skillet and drain fat. I reserve some of the bacon fat and use it to saute the onions and brown the kielbasa in.
2Brown kielbasa in skillet with small amount of bacon fat. Drain on paper towel and set aside.

Saute the diced onion in a about a tablespoon of bacon fat until soft. Drain on paper towel and set aside.
3Add all ingredients to crock-pot and stir to combine. Cook on low for about 6 hours or until they have thickened.
4Add as much or as little of the jalapeno as you like, or eliminate altogether if not a fan of spicy food.
