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.

This calico baked beans recipe has graced many a buffet table and they always get rave reviews. I think it’s the unexpected Tex Mex flavor that gets ’em! {I originally shared the recipe on Homes.com}.  Make them the next time you need a side dish for hot dogs and burgers.

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 a Heinz beans commercial and they talk about how beans aren’t very attractive {or something to that effect}.  Anyway, the taste is amazing 🙂

Calico Baked Beans Recipe

  • 1/2 of package (12 oz) breakfast sausage – regular flavor
  • 2 cans (15 oz each) pork and beans – drained
  • 1 can (15 oz) black beans – drained and rinsed
  • 1 can (15 oz) white beans – drained and rinsed
  • 1 cup chunky salsa
  • 1/2 of package (1.25 oz) dry Taco seasoning

Heat oven to 350 degrees.

In a skillet, cook sausage over medium heat until no longer pink, and drain grease.

In a casserole dish, combine all ingredients.  Cover with foil or lid and bake for 45 minutes to an hour, until hot and bubbly.
