Calico Beans

Calico Beans is one of the comfort foods that remind me of home, growing up it was a meal my mom cooked many many times during the colder months.  I would describe it as a sweet version of chili.  It is a meal perfect for a quite evening at home or for a big group gathering.

½ lb bacon diced
½ lb ground beef
½ diced onion
½ cup ketchup
½ cup brown sugar
1 tablespoon dry mustard
1 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons  vinegar
1 15oz can pork & beans drained
1 15oz can kidney beans drained
1 15oz can butter beans drained

Cook bacon.  Crush and add beef and onion.  Cook.  Stir with fork and drain off fat.  Put everything in crock pot and add all other ingredients.  Heat for 1 hour.  Do not overcook.  Beans are already done.
