When I was a missionary for my church, I spent some time in an area where the members of the church would always feed us dinner. One night, I went to a members dinner and she served us a version on this.  I fell in love!!

I immediately asked her for the recipe because I knew I would want to have this calico bean recipe again and again.  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 easy family meal 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.
