How to Make It
Place sausage in a Dutch oven over medium, and cook, stirring often, until browned, about 12 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, transfer sausage to a plate lined with paper towels. Add reserved bacon drippings, onion, celery, bell pepper, and garlic to Dutch oven, and cook, stirring occasionally, until tender, about 5 minutes.
Increase heat to medium-high; stir in beans, tomato sauce, ketchup, Worcestershire sauce, chili powder, sugar, salt, pepper, and cooked sausage, and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer, stirring occasionally, 30 minutes. Stir in crumbled bacon, and serve over hot cooked rice. Sprinkle with scallions, and serve with hot sauce.
