Calico Beans

Since it’s barbecue season, I thought I’d share my favorite family recipe for a side dish that is always requested when brisket or other meat is smoking on the grill.  This one is for you mom.

Calico Beans

1 can green lima beans,


1 can red kidney beans,


1 can large butter beans,


1 can black beans, drained

2 med. Cans pork-n-beans,


½ lb. bacon diced

1 large onion, chunked

1 clove garlic, minced

¼ tsp. dry mustard

½ cup cider vinegar

¾ – 1 cup brown sugar

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Fry bacon until light brown.  Add onion & sauté until clear.  Add garlic, dry mustard, vinegar & brown sugar.  Heat to boiling for several minutes.  Add beans and mix well.  Transfer to large greased ovenproof casserole dish. Cover & bake for 1 hour.  Let set for 1 hour after baking to absorb liquid.
