Pepper to taste
The base for this recipe is a wholesale-sized can of baked beans. It costs about $5.00 and goes a long way.
Melt butter in large frying pan over medium-low heat. Dice onions and peppers and heat in pan until soft. Slice smoked sausage into bite-sized pieces. Add to pan until heated through.
In a large pot, heat baked beans to a simmer. Add brown sugar, and stir until dissolved. Add sausage, onion and peppers. Stir thoroughly and allow to simmer for ten minutes or until heated through. Salt and pepper to taste.
I am married to a handsome, wonderful man that embraces my particular shade of crazy. We have three beautiful, maniacal children and they are going to get me canonized one day. We own a house in Las Vegas' Ward five so that we can vote on issues that affect the people I serve. It is full of feral children, pets, half-completed household projects, broken crayons, goldfish crackers, toys, paperback novels, visiting family members, and love. I love every sticky, noisy, messy inch of this place and all the mischievous creatures that live here.
I am a fiercely proud Nevadan. There is a very real problem with food insecurity in Las Vegas and my mission is to nourish as many of those in-need as I can. This is my city and these are my people.l
