This is one of my husbands favorite recipes... he loves to volunteer me to make it every time we attend a potluck dinner.

It is pretty much a meal in itself but it also makes a pretty nice side dish.

I hope you enjoy!

How to Make Reenies Beanie Weenies


  1. in a large skillet, fry the half pound of bacon till crispy, set aside to cool. In 3 tblsp of reserved bacon fat, saute the onion, green pepper, and little smokies till the vegetables are just carmelized and the sausages are heated through.
  2. open and drain the two large cans of baked beans then dump them into a large 9 x 15 pan. Crumble the crispy bacon into the beans, then add your vegetables, brown sugar, sausages, salsa, seasoning mix and mustard. Stir well then add the salt and the chili powder. Taste and decide if you like it sweeter or more savory and add more chili powder and salt if you need to. Lay the 5 strips of raw bacon across the top and put in the fridge to give flavors time to blend.
  3. Preheat oven to 350 then place the pan in the middle of the oven and bake 1 - 1 1/2 hours ... till the beans are bubbly and bacon is crisp. Let rest for about 20 minutes, then serve
