Crockpot Calico Beans Easy Family Meal

Calico Beans

A friend of mine let me have this Calico Bean Crock Pot recipe after having it at her house.  I have changed it a bit over the years because of our taste preferences and because I was making it a little healthier.  I LOVE this recipe because it is super easy and very healthy!  You can also serve it in a lot of different ways!  My favorite is to eat it plain but my daughter likes it with rice.
