Crockpot Calico Beans

  • 2 cups pinto beans, cooked and drained
  • 1 lb. ground beef (I use 1/2 pound)
  • 2 cups Northern beans, cooked and drained
  • 1-1/2 cups onions, diced
  • 2 cups red kidney beans, cooked and drained
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • 1 qt. pork & beans or homemade baked beans
  • 2 t. salt
  • 1 clove minced garlic
  • 2 tbsp vinegar
  • ½ cup ketchup

Brown beef and onions, drain. Reserve small amount of cooking liquid. Combine garlic, ketchup, brown sugar, salt and vinegar. Pour all into slow cooker and mix. Add enough cooking liquid to barely cover beans. Cover and cook on low 8 hours.

    For the reader who was looking to make this without a Crockpot, simply mix it all in a Dutch oven, or other large pot and cook it on low heat on the stove for an hour or two.
