Kicked up Franks and Beans

This was a recipe that just came out of what was available to me and what needed to be used up asap, but it turned out really good and I probably will make it again.

* 1 box of cornbread mix, mixed as per directions on the box, set aside to rest
* 4-6 hot dogs sliced depending on what you have on hand and how many people you are serving (I sliced mine thin so that there would be more slices throughout the dish because I only had 4 small hot dogs)
* 1 can baked beans (I used bush's vegetarian)
* 1 can of white beans, rinsed (I used great northern)
* 1 med to large onion, chopped
* 1 red bell pepper, chopped
* 1 clove of garlic, minced
* oil to sweat out garlic
* bbq sauce to taste (I used a honey chipolte flavor and approximately 3 tbls)

Preheat the oven to the temp called for on the cornbread mix. Heat up the oil and then add garlic and onions, when they have cooked up a few minutes, add the red pepper. After a few minutes add the hot dogs to get them browned a bit. Once it looks nice and blended with a good color on the hot dogs, pour into a casserole dish. I used a 1.5 qrt for 4 hot dogs. Add the beans and the bbq sauce. Mix well. Spread the corn bread mix over the top of the casserole dish and cover with aluminum foil to help it not burn before the bread is done. Cook until the corn bread is done, taking the foil off in the middle to get a nice brown on the topping. Mine took about 40 minutes to get the bread cooked all the way thru. Scoop and serve.

YUM! Hubby would never eat it though because of the beans. He's not a fan unless they're in chili. :-/
