Six-Bean Barbecued Beans- Slow Cooker

Fix-it and Forget-it Cookbook (Gladys Longacre, p.213)

1 can kidney beans, drained
1 can pinto beans, drained
1 can Great Northern beans, drained
1 can butter beans, drained
1 can navy/white beans, drained
1 can pork & beans (I used a vegetarian can)
1/4 cup barbecue sauce
1/4 cup mustard
1/3 cup ketchup
1 small onion, chopped
1 small bell pepper, chopped
1/4 cup molasses (or sorghum molasses)
1 cup brown sugar

Mix together all ingredients in slow cooker.
Cook on Low 4-6 hours.

Makes 15-18 servings

(That's the only downside with this recipe- if you only intend on feeding up to 6, you'll have a mountain of beans left over, and as you're emptying out entire cans, I can't see how you could easily cut this recipe in half.  I'm just hoping they freeze well as that's what we ended up doing with our leftovers...)
