- 8 – 10 hot dogs, sliced
- 1 1/2 c. white beans
- 1 1/2 c. chili beans (I use either small red or kidneys)
- 1/2 c. brown sugar (I use sucanat and cut the amount down)
- 1/2 c. chopped onion
- 1/4 c. chopped green pepper
- 2 T. vinegar
- 1/4 t. oregano
- 1/2 – 1 c. tomato sauce
- 1 t. salt
Ideally you know that you’ll be making this a couple of days in advance and can soak and sprout the beans to maximize the nutritional value as well as to greatly increase the digestibility. I soak them overnight, drain them the next morning, and then let them sit on the counter for a day. The next morning, I rinse them again, and in warm weather they have sprouted within two days of when I first soaked them. Cook the beans until soft.
Combine all ingredients and pour into a baking pan. Bake, uncovered, at 350 degrees for 1 1/2 to 2 hours, stirring occasionally.
