Picnic Bean Casserole

Smoked bacon adds zest to this bean bake, a recipe I got from my mother. I must confess that lima beans have never been among my favorite foods. But I actually like them in this casserole, and their color brightens up the mixture. -Jill Evely, Wilmore, Kentucky

    This is a great recipe to use up all the different kind of beans in the pantry. Add a touch of hot pepper and it's all you need.

    A great simple bean recipe. My kids loved it and didn't even complain about the lima beans!!! Delicious!!! I only did 4 stars because I thought it could use a little zip. It's good enough that I'm willing to try again and add some things.
