Calico Beans

As a child I loved going to potlucks at church.  Such great dishes to choose from! One dish I was introduced to was calico beans.  This dish is something I have only made once or twice at home but after I made it a few weeks ago, I have fallen in love with it.

Calico Beans

2 cans pork and beans
1 pound ground beef, browned
8 pieces of bacon
1 can black beans
1 can butter beans
1 can chili beans
1/2 c. ketchup
1/2 c. brown sugar
1/2 c. chopped onion
1 T. cider vinegar
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. mustard

After browning ground beef and draining, combine all ingredients, crumbling bacon.  Stir together and cook at 325 degrees for 45 minutes.

I served this with warm cornbread muffins and although my two youngest daughters aren't sold on the recipe yet, my oldest daughter had seconds and thirds. 

I bought the ingredients to make this for supper tomorrow night and have been looking forward to it all week.  Yum!

My post this morning is for a dish I made for a church potluck also. This recipe may be a little to meaty for me but I'm glad you enjoyed it.
