Calico Beans

Calico Beans
(The perfect picnic recipe)

I got this recipe from my sister.  I don't know who she said she got it from.  She has changed it a little and I've changed it slightly.
It's great to throw in a crock pot and take to a picnic.  Everyone wants baked beans at a picnic!!

Here's my version of the recipe:
(I usually double this to take somewhere)

1/2 C chopped onion
10 slices of bacon cut in pieces and browned with onion 
then add 1/2 lb ground meat and brown.  (I use ground turkey)
Add 1 can each of kidney beans, Butter beans, pork & beans and black beans.
Add 1/4 C BBQ sauce
2 T molasses
1/2 t chili powder
1/3 C brown sugar
1/3 C white sugar
1/4 cup ketchup
a couple squirts of mustard
And salt and pepper
 Heat together in a pot on the stove then put in crockpot on low till it's picnic time!


Happy picnicking this summer!!

I'm linking up with a new "party"
