baked beans... 2 hours and 30 minutes

My husband cannot get enough of these!

the goods:

6 slices of bacon, cut into small pieces
1 large onion, diced
1 red bell pepper, diced
1 green bell pepper, diced
1 yellow bell pepper, diced
1 orange bell pepper, diced
4 cans (28 ounces each) traditional baked beans
1/2 cup barbecue sauce
1 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
2 tablespoons yellow mustard

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. In a large pot over medium-high heat, cook the bacon pieces with the onion for 4 to 5 minutes, until the onion is translucent. Add the bell peppers, stir to combine, and cook for about 2 minutes. Add the beans and stir to combine. Add the barbecue sauce, brown sugar, vinegar, red pepper flakes, and the mustard. Stir and cook the mixture until it is hot and bubbly. Pour into a large baking dish, then bake the beans for 2 hours, until they are bubbly and thick.
