These are the BEST! Ive been making this recipe for over 20 years now, and its always a HIT with my family and friends! Great for BBQs, potlucks, camping etc. Can be made in the oven or in the crockpot, and it freezes and reheats well.
Cowboy Calico Beans - I use northern beans instead of limas. I also add 1/2 lb of crumbled cooked bacon, and I reserve some liquid from the beans to add back in with the sauce, so the beans don't dry out. I also add cracked black pepper....to everything! LOL
