Well, it looked like baked beans so my next question was how would it taste?
I used all the regular ingredients (bacon, onions, hot peppers, Worcestershire sauce). The ingredients I changed were beans (pinto beans), ketchup (tomato paste), brown sugar (diet root beer concentrate). The next thing I had to be aware of was portion size. I decided that 1/4 cup is correct for portion size. My blood sugar was 111 this morning so I think it is all right.
For taste, I thought it was good but waited with trepidation for Larry's evaluation. He said it was good. But. Sometimes he says it is good and I have to watch to see if he ever eats more. He doesn't want to discourage me from cooking:)
