Fall into Flavor Week 4

It's time for the fourth installment of Linda's Fall into Flavor. This week I am offering Calypso Beans, a dish that my friend and coworker Kristine makes for carry-ins and cookouts. She originally found the recipe on the internet, but in her words, "has tweaked it to perfection".

Calypso Beans- serves 12 but is easily doubled

1 large can pork and beans
1 can kidney beans
1 can butter beans
1/2 lb. ground beef
1/2 lb. ground sausage
1/4 lb. bacon, cut into small pieces
1 medium onion, chopped
1/2 c. ketchup
1/2 c. brown sugar
2 tsp. vinegar
1/2 tsp. salt

Brown beef, sausage, bacon and onion over medium heat. Drain kindey and butter beans. Combine ketchup, brown sugar, vinegar and salt. Put meat mixture in crockpot. Add beans, then pour ketchup mixture on top. Cook on low 6-8 hours. May be made ahead of time and stored in refrigerator, then cook on low 8 hours.

Visit Linda for more deliciousness!


  1. This is one of my wintertime favorites, Bekah. My high school boyfriend's mom used to make this, except she called it Calico Beans! :)

  2. I could do this!!! Thanks for participating, Rebekah. If you have done this all four weeks, do this again one last time next week and you can be in the drawing for another apron.

  3. Sounds really really good! Am filing this to try next fall (opposite seasons). Thanks for sharing!
