Calico Bean Pot

READY IN: 1hr 15mins
Recipe by KristinB

My favorite bean casserole!!! I've taken this to many potlucks & picnics, & there's never a bean left. Everyone asks for this recipe. This is from 'The Best of the Best' cookbook. I always double this recipe & use a large crock pot; I cook for the same length of time listed below.
