1 purple onion, sliced
2 16 oz. Cans of Pork and Beans
1 Can Kidney Beans
1 Can Pinto Beans
1 Can Chili Beans
1 Cup Brown Sugar

1 Can of mushrooms, sliced (optional)
1 lb. Bacon (optional)
2 pkgs. String mozzarella sticks
Brown ground beef, salt and drain. Pour all of the beans in a strainer over a bowl; pour the beans in the crock-pot.

Tear the mozzarella sticks into strips and add them to the pot, continue cooking on high for 2 more hours.
