Calico Beans

Calico beans is one of our favorite go-to recipes all year long, but especially during the winter. And we're also surprised how many people have never heard of this awesome dish. 

They're called calico beans because the recipe includes beans of many varieties and colors. The end result is similar to chili, but sweeter and tangier.
