Classic Calico Bean Casserole – A Staple At Every Church Potluck

This is one casserole that I distinctly remember having at any and all church potluck meals. See, I grew up in a Mennonite church and there were staple foods that would should up at each potluck supper. Calico beans were definitely one of them. These beans are easy to make and they taste great! Thank you so much AllRecipes for sharing this amazing dish with the world to see via video over on your YouTube channel.

Check out what my pals over at AllRecipes had to say about this amazing recipe:

Kidney beans, baked beans and butter beans are combined with ground beef, bacon and onion and baked. It’s thick, hearty, and pretty tasty too! This can also be done in a slow cooker.



1 (15 ounce) can kidney beans, undrained
1 (16 ounce) can baked beans with pork
1 (15 ounce) can butter beans, undrained
1/2 cup Heinz ketchup
2 teaspoons white vinegar
1 tablespoon McCormick dry mustard
3/4 cup packed Domino brown sugar
1 pound lean ground beef
4 ounces bacon, chopped
1/2 cup chopped onion
salt to taste
ground black pepper to taste


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
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 butter beans. Stir in the ketchup, white vinegar, dry mustard, brown sugar and cook beef mixture. Mix thoroughly, adding salt and pepper to taste.
Pour the bean and meat mixture into a 9×13 inch baking dish. Bake in preheated oven for 30 to 40 minutes.
