Step 1:

Chop the onions and bell peppers. Then dice the bacon into thin pieces.

Step 2:

Heat the pan and pour four (4) tablespoons of olive oil. Once the pan is heated, toss the diced bacon, onions, and peppers. Put the pan on medium or low heat, then cook for a few minutes until the onions are soft. Once the onions are soft, toss 1/8 stick of salted butter. Cook until the bacon is crispy.

Step 3:

When the bacon is toasted and brown, add a whole can of original baked beans. Then combine a half cup of barbecue sauce. You can use sweet and spicy barbecue sauce if you love some kick, or you can also put your favorite BBQ sauce. Put the heat on low and let them simmer and thicken for 15 minutes.
