Sweet & Tangy Calico Beans


Ingredients:

8 ounces bacon, about 10-12 slices
1 lb. lean ground beef
1 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 Tbsp. dry mustard
2 cans pork and beans
1 can lima or butter beans, drained
1 can kidney beans, drained

1/4 cup spicy bbq sauce
1 tsp. salt

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F

In a large skillet over medium heat, fry the ground beef, bacon, and onion together until ground beef is no longer pink. Drain fat.

In a large mixing bowl, combine the kidney beans, baked beans with pork, and lima or butter beans. Stir in the ketchup, bbq sauce, white vinegar, dry mustard, brown sugar and cooked beef mixture.

Mix thoroughly, adding salt and pepper to taste.

Pour the bean and meat mixture into a 9x13 inch baking dish. Bake in preheated oven for 30 to 40 minutes. Garnish with shredded cheese. Enjoy!
