Dr Pepper Baked Beans
- 1 28-ounce can pork and beans (or two regular-sized 14-ounce cans)
- 1 onion, chopped fine
- 1 green pepper, chopped fine
- 1 tomato, chopped fine
- 1/2 cup dark brown sugar
- 1/3 cup Dr Pepper
- 1/8 teaspoon ground cloves (I left these out)
Preheat oven to 350 F.
Drain liquid from the pork and beans. Pour beans into a bean pot, if you have one, or a baking dish if you don't. Gently mix in onion, green pepper, and tomato into the beans.
Combine sugar, Dr Pepper, and cloves (if you use them) until sugar is dissolved. Pour evenly over the bean mixture. Bake, covered, for an hour. Check on the beans; they might need a little more time than that, but don't overcook them.
You could successfully substitute ginger ale for the Dr Pepper for a different flavor.
