Calico Beans

I purposely make huge amounts of this recipe and freeze it because it freezes so well.  We use this as a main dish but could also be used as a side dish.  I made 8 main dishes with this recipe plus a meal of a side.

6 15-oz cans baked beans  (we use Bush's)
2 15-oz cans baby lima beans
1 15-oz can kidney beans
1 15-oz can black beans
1 pound pork sausage
1/2 pound bacon
1 cup ketchup
1 teaspoon prepared mustard
1 tablespoon BBQ sauce (opt)
1 tablespoon Worsteshire sauce

Brown the sausage and cook the bacon.  Crumble the bacon.  Set aside.

Drain all the beans EXCEPT the baked beans.

Combine all ingredients and stir to blend.

Freeze in portions for your family.  To serve, thaw and bake at 350 degrees for 20-30 minutes or until heated through.
