Calico Beans

Submitted by:
This is similiar to baked beans, but better!

Preparation time: 20 minutes
Cooking time: 90 minutes

Difficulty: Easy - for beginners
Serves: 6

Dietary guidance: v v n g d 


1 cup chopped onion
1 cup chopped green pepper
1 T. vinegar
1 T. prepared mustard
1/2 c. ketchup
1/4 c. bacon-flavored bits
3/4 c. brown sugar
1 can each: baked beans, kidney beans, lima beans, water chestnuts


Drain the lima beans and combine all other ingredients and stir. Bake for 90 minutes in a 350 degree oven. (You can also use the crockpot, but in that case I would cook them 8 hours or over night so that they are not too soupy. I prefer them more well done than that. This is easier to achieve in a traditional oven. If you get bacon-flavored bits (most of them are) and vegetarian baked beans, this is a vegetarian recipe. This is a favorite at church dinners - I usually double it if I am going to take it to a potluck.
