Norma's Calico Baked Bean's

Norma DeRemer


I have used this recipe for years.
When our Church has a pot luck dinner I always take this casserole. It always goes over well with everyone including the kids. It's easy to make and has so much flavor. At times with all those different beans in it we eat it in a bowl by itself it is that good. I also have added cooked ground beef to these beans to make a one dish meal. Oh so good!
