Calico Beans

featured in "The Bright Season"

This hearty, flavorful side comes together in minutes and is easily multiplied to feed a crowd. It’s the perfect pass-around for a potluck, or serve it as a savory compliment to a simple chicken or beef main dish. You can bake it in the oven, as described here, or simmer it in a slow-cooker for a few hours. Want to boost the flavor? Use your favorite barbecue sauce instead of ketchup, or add some minced garlic or even a little chopped jalapeno pepper.
