Potluck Side Dish :: Calico Baked Beans

calico baked beans

Got any cookouts to attend this weekend? Well I have the perfect potluck recipe for you to make and take! When we get together with friends or family for casual backyard parties it’s always “bring a dish” style. Everyone brings their favorite recipe for salads, baked beans, or dessert, and there’s usually some recipe exchanges taking place.

These calico baked beans have graced many a buffet table and they always get a rave review. I think it’s the unexpected Tex Mex flavor that gets ‘em! I’m sharing the full recipe on Homes.com this week so head over and get it so you can make them the next time you need a side dish for hot dogs and burgers. And as always you can PIN it for later!

Random Note:  It was only after I decided to share this recipe, that I realized that beans are not the “prettiest” things to photograph.  Which reminded me of the episode of Mad Men where Peggy is pitching Heinz a beans commercial and they talk about how beans aren’t very attractive {or something to that effect}.  Anyway, the taste is amazing :-)

Have a great weekend!
