Texas Ranger Baked Beans

1 28 ounce can baked beans
1 medium onion, diced
1 medium green pepper, diced
1 medium red pepper, diced
4 links spicy pork sausage, cut into chunks (you can also use ground spicy sausage like Mexican chorizzo)
2 tbl chili powder
3 tbl Worcestershire sauce
4 tbl vinegar
1/2 c packed brown sugar
1/2 c ketchup
1 tsp garlic powder
salt & pepper to taste
1 dash cayenne pepper or red pepper flakes (optional, depending on the amount of heat you want)

You can cook these in the oven, but I like to use a crock pot. If in the oven, preheat it to 350. I like to cook/brown the sausage first. I think it adds great flavor. Next, in a heavy pan, like a Dutch oven, combine everything together. Combine and bake for one hour.

If using a crock pot, cook on low for about 4-6 hours, on high for 3-4.
