2then take your other ingredients and add them to crock pot. This is so darn easy and gooood! My family like to even just eat this by itself. You can also add more brown sugar or less, but i do normally use about 2 cups. I normally make this about two hours prior to going to where ever i am needing to take the dish and just add everything in the crock pot and leave it go---S00000 easy and i m sure that everyone will gobble it up!!!--you can also cut down the beans or make more, but i normally like to use two cans of pork and beans to one can of chili hot beans---enjoy---I have been told numerous times that this is the best beans they tasted---Thanks Aunt Debbie for coming up with such a awesome side!!
