Calico Beans

bean calico 01-001
This was a picnic special when I was growing up. If we were meeting for a potluck you could bet there would be at least one dish of calico beans. My mother loved to make this dish but did not always include all the ingredients.
1/2 pound bacon, diced
1 pound ground beef
1 small onion, chopped
1 can pork and beans
15 oz. can kidney beans, drained
15 oz. can lima beans, drained
1/2 cup ketchup
1 tsp. salt
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 T vinegar

Brown bacon, beef, and onion; drain.  Combine all ingredients. Simmer on stove or bake in 350F oven for 40 minutes.
