Barbeque Baked Bean Cheese Dip

This was in the Thursday Food edition of the AJC. It's suuuuperrrrrb.

1.5 cups catsup
1/2 c molasses
1/3 c maple syrup
1/3 c packed brown sugar
3 strips bacon, finely chopped
4 slices deli ham, finely diced
1 small yellow onion, diced
1/4 Dijon mustard
1 cup water
three 15-oz cans cannellini beans, drained
8 oz pkg cream cheese, softened
8 oz shredded cheddar cheese
1-pd bag corn tortilla chips

In medium saucepan over medium heat, combine the catsup, molasses, maple syrup, brown sugar, bacon, ham, onion, mustard and water. Bring to a simmer, then reduce heat to low and cook, stirring often, until very thick, about 2 hours. (Note from Tie: I put it in the crockpot on low instead so I didn't have to watch it.)

Add beans and simmer another 10 minutes.

Heat oven to 350 and spread cream cheese in an even layer across the bottom of a deep 8x8 baking or casserole dish. Spoon beans and sauce over cream cheese, then top with cheddar. Bake 10 minutes or until cheese is melted and heated through.

Serve with chips.
