This dish can feed the crowd! It’s super filling, hearty, and is actually a whole meal. Just serve this with some cornbread for a satisfying dinner that everyone will love!
This casserole has a mix of a variety of beans with ground beef and savory sauce. If you are wondering why this is called Calico, that is because of the mixture of colors just like a multi-colored Calico cat. I have been making this for years now and it never fails to please the crowd. This casserole’s sauce has a sweet and tangy flavor that gives this a zesty smoky advantage that goes perfectly with sloppy joes, grilled hot dogs, chicken, hamburgers, pork, steaks, and a whole range of entrances!
