I have tried calico beans at a cookout before & loved them. This Independence Day I decided I'd make one after running across this recipe. I made it the night before as recipe stated but instead of baking in oven, I made stove top. Before I set it in fridge I tried it. It was good, but I felt as if it was missing something... I'm not sure what flavor could be missing and that is why I only rated a 4*. It's good, but not the best I've tried. I agree with others, it can be a meal in itself. It can even be served over rice or baked potato if you have leftovers.**REVISED**I learned the reason for the difference of taste is that I am used to a recipe that has 1/2 beef, 1/2 pork sausage meat blend. I did have people tell me they enjoyed this bean recipe. I will try the sausage/beef blend next.
