Calico Beans. I made this once for my dad and now my mom has to make it often. It’s one of his favorites…
These Slow Cooker Calico Beans are a fast, frugal and delicious dinner that the entire family will love! The best part? They can be cooked in the Instant Pot or the oven as well. I finally got around to making this calico beans recipe ( what the heck kind of name is calico beans?) which Mike has literally been bugging me to make all summer long.
From cowboys to kiddos, everyone goes crazy for Slow Cooker Calico Beans. Loaded with beef and bacon, they’re great for a cookouts, parties, and easy meals!
Serve calico beans with Grilled Pork Chops, Broccoli Salad with bacon and cheese, and an easy Eclair Cake for your next party…it doesn’t get any better than that.
Oh, this recipe! Sort of a chili, kind of baked beans, maybe a sloppy Joe, but always completely delicious. It’s just the kind of thing to make when the weather takes a chilly turn and you’re hungry for something that really sticks to the ribs.
Calico Beans can also go by the name Cowboy Beans, probably because this meaty one-pot meal was a campfire favorite under the starry skies for generations. And if you haven’t tried it before, you’re in for quite a treat.
