My daughter received this recipe from a friend a while ago. Bacon gives this dish a wonderfully rich flavor, making it a favorite dish to pass at potlucks. - Jean Roper, Palermo, California

Nutritional Facts

1 serving (1 each) equals 415 calories, 14 g fat (5 g saturated fat), 43 mg cholesterol, 1,068 mg sodium, 50 g carbohydrate, 11 g fiber, 26 g protein.

Directions

  1. In a large skillet, cook bacon over medium heat until crisp. Remove to paper towels with a slotted spoon; drain, reserving 2 tablespoons drippings. Saute onion in drippings until tender; remove with a slotted spoon. Transfer bacon and onion to a 4- or 5-qt. slow cooker.
  2. In the same skillet, cook beef until no longer pink; drain and add to slow cooker. Add the remaining ingredients and mix well. Cover and cook on low for 4-6 hours or until heated through. Yield: 10 servings.
When a recipe instructs you to cook diced bacon, cut the bacon with a kitchen shears directly into the skillet. It's faster than chopping with a knife, and there's little mess.

MY REVIEW

"Was given a similar recipe years ago - called Calico Beans. I use at least 5 different beans, i.e., black, red, lima, butter, great northern, pinto, etc., thus, the name, "Calico" Beans. It's a great potluck dish."

MY REVIEW

"This was excellent! I did add an extra 1/2 lb of ground beef, used 3 small cans of pork n beans, used 2 small cans of light kidney beans. The extra ground beef gave it more of a meaty meal instead of a beany meal. This made enough for 8 regular size servings. Awesome Meal!"
