This is the perfect side dish for any bbq or family gathering. I mean who doesn’t like Calico Beans? In fact, we like it so much, I am known to make it as the main dish and serve it with cornbread and a salad.
These are not your grandmas baked beans. These are over the top. They are filling, rich, and leave you wanting more. Don’t let me scared off by the lima beans. Normally, I wont go near lima beans, but they are a whole other creature in this dish.
Gather all your friends and family for a summer BBQ potluck. Wow them with these Calico Beans.
