  • 2 15 oz black beans canned, drained and rinsed
  • 2 15.8 oz Great Northern beans canned, drained and rinsed
  • 1 15.25 oz can kidney beans canned, drained and rinsed
  • 1 onion diced
  • 1/2 cup barbecue sauce
  • 3/4 cup ketchup
  • 1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tbsp mustard
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup molasses
  • 14.5 oz chicken broth
  • 1/2 lb bacon cooked, cut into bite size pieces
  • 2 lbs Kielbasa cut into bite size pieces


  • In a large slow cooker, add all of the ingredients except for the kielbasa and stir gently to combine.
  • Place the kielbasa on top and cover with the lid.
  • Cook on low for 6 to 8 hours or high for 4 to 5 hours. Stir in the kielbasa before serving.



I recommend the low setting for this recipe because on high, the beans tend to get dried out. If you need to cook on high due to time constraints, monitor the beans and add more broth or water if necessary.
