1/2 large green or red bell pepper
Two 15-ounch cans pinto beans or navy beans, drain liquid and rinse
1 cup barbeque sauce
1/2 cup water
2 tablespoons dark brown sugar
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
Position rack in middle of oven and heat to 375. In an 8-inch square baking pan, mix together everything except Worcestershire sauce. Stir well to dissolve sugar completely. Dribble Worcestershire over top. Bake until slightly thickened, glazed and browned on top, and bubbling vigorously around the edges, 45 minutes to an hour. Let cool slightly before serving. Serves 4-6.
