Dr. Pepper Baked Beans

1 can pork and beans (28 oz) 1 onion, chopped fine 1 green pepper, chopped fine 1 tomato, chopped fine 1/2 cup dark brown sugar 1/3 cup Dr. Pepper beverage (soda) 1/8 t. ground cloves

Preheat oven to 350. Drain liquid from pork and beans; pour into baking dish. Gently mix in onion, pepper and tomato. Mix sugar, Dr. Pepper and cloves until sugar is dissolved. Pour evenly over bean mixture. Bake uncovered 30 minutes. This was originally a Vernors recipe, but when they ran out of ginger ale, the decided that rather than substitute an inferior brand, they would change the recipe and give the beans a full bodied zest of Dr. Pepper soda. The alteration worked. These are hearty eats, good companions for pork chops, ham loaf or wieners. Serves 4 to 6 Source: My Old Recipes
