1/4 cup of chopped green pepper adds more flavor

Add onions and cook 5 minutes. Then, add green pepper, little more of both if you are going to use 2 cans of beans. Cook 6 minutes, stirring some. Add catsup, BBQ sauce and brown sugar. Bring to boil. Put in salt and pepper and stir. Cover and simmer for 20 minutes. Drain most of the juice from the beans in a cup, in case you want to add more liquid. If just using one can of beans add that to skillet right after bringing catsup to a boil, stir and cover. If using two cans of beans, add what you can to the skillet to heat the beans, then put in oven.
For a more complete meal, boil or microwave hot dogs in water for 2 minutes, drain well and place few in skillet or in larger pan in the oven.
