Calico Beans: For the Pregnant One

Saute together:

1 lb ground beef
1/2 lb bacon
1/2 c chopped onion

Drain off fat. Add:

1/2 c ketchup (maybe up to 1 c)
1/2 scant c. brown sugar
2 T prepared mustard
3 T vinegar
(I usually make the sauce separately and pour it in.)

Stir well. Then add:

1 lg can pork & beans
1 can red kidney beans
1 can lima beans

Simmer for 1 1/2 hours. Stir often. You can also put it into a crockpot and cook it for many hours.

(You can do any type of variation of this by adding corn, mushrooms or whatever else. We don't really like lima beans, so I double one of the other types. This is a fantastic meal to make for a lot of people. My mom makes it very often...maybe too often!)
