Crock Pot Beans 'n Wieners

This is a quick and easy crock pot baked bean dish - with the hot dogs you can use this as an entree, or serve alongside barbecue fair as a baked bean side dish! We enjoyed it both ways. If you aren't interested in the hot dogs, just omit those and you have a delicious and easy baked bean dish perfect for your summer cook outs and get togethers!

It's a lovely combination of sweet and tangy, and I loved the addition of the caramelized onion and tasty pieces of bacon mixed in. It keeps well in the crock pot on warm.

We had some leftover hot dogs in the refrigerator - which seems to happen every time I buy hot dogs. My daughter loves one or two of them, and then isn't interested in the rest of the package so I have to come up with something creative to use them in. This isn't usually an issue - I actually like hot dogs too and it's fun to find different ways to enjoy them. Smothered in chili is probably one of my favorite versions!
