Calico Beans

Cooking Recipes Catalogue

This hearty melange of beans works just as well at the Thanksgiving feast as it does at a summer barbeque. Using canned beans makes it practical to incorporate the variety of legumes required for the calico effect, and simplifies the preparation.

INGREDIENTS (for 9 servings):


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 C).
  • Place bacon and ground beef in a large, deep skillet. Cook over medium high heat until evenly brown. Drain and set aside.
  • In a four quart casserole dish, mix together the bacon, ground beef, pork and beans, kidney beans, butter beans, lima beans, ketchup, onion, vinegar, dry mustard and celery.
  • Cover and bake for 1 hour.
