Delicious. I sub'd cannellini beans for the chickpeas (preference). Little bit sweet, little bit smoky. Enjoyed.

I substitute cannellini & black beans for the butter beans and lima beans. In addition to making it as a side dish, I also sometimes use it as a main dish (halve the number of servings) with a bit of cornbread. I also prefer using a crock pot on low to really let the flavor develop.

These beans turned out really good. I made them for Father's Day and everyone enjoyed them. I substituted great northern beans for the lima beans and also added a can of black beans and some liquid smoke. Very nice!
