Saucy Calico Beans
Total TimePrep: 30 min. Bake: 1 hour
Makes12 servings (3/4 cup each)
Too sweet for us. Would make again using less sugar and try adding green pepper and maybe some catsup.
I thought this was really good served with roast beef sandwiches and potato salad. I don't like lima beans so I substituted 1 can black beans and 1 can white kidney beans.
Just the right amount of sweet and savory. Tastes just like my aunt's calico beans that I've loved since I was a little girl!
A delicious family favorite! I dice my onions instead of halving and slicing, and I use great northern beans in place of the lima. This is also a great recipe for the slow cooker. After stirring in the beans, I put it all in my crock pot on low for 5 hours. The left-overs are tasty, too!
Very saucy and good. I added chopped green pepper.
I've made this recipe several times. It's delicious as is but sometimes I like to change it a little....different beans, sauces, etc. Lots of compliments when I serve it.
Yummy, yummy, yummy.
This is truly a winner. I use hamburger for a main dish and without if it is a side to hamburgers. Great either way. I use butter beans instead of lima beans and add ketchup as well.
Fixed these beans for a dinner party last weekend. I just received an invitation to a potluck. I was asked to please bring "those beans". I did use brown sugar splenda instead of regular brown sugar.
I had found this recipe about five years ago, have made it numerous times for church gatherings, and it was a huge hit... well I moved and lost all my recipes, and was elated to have found it again on here!!! This recipe is absolutely amazing! I add either lil smokies or kielbasa to it to add to the flavor!
