I've got two tried and true recipies if you want them. One is for my husbands hamburger beans, which does have hamburger (obviously), and bacon in it, but you could leave the bacon out without problems. Everytime we go somewhere, this is the family request for Dave to bring.
I also have a recipe for a very simple, glorified baked beans, that I don't think have any meat in them. I've made these before when we didn't feel like taking the time to make the others, and they turned out really well.
