Everyone loved this. Just the right combos of beans, salty, and sweet.

I was about to look for a different recipe because I don't like lima beans but saw the review that suggested substituting for them so that's what I did. Glad I stuck with this recipe because it was a) easy and didn't require a lot of prep, and b) had crock pot instructions because my oven died the night before I was going to make this.

I made this recipe and it is fabulous! Only changes I made was to swap out cannellini beans for the lima beans and I used two 8 oz cans of pork & beans. Kept the crock pot on low all day and they just got thicker and better the longer they were on.

I absolutely love this recipe. It is easy to prepare and I get lots of requests for the recipe every time I prepare it. I add a 1/4 cup of molasses for a little sweetness and that is all I change from the original recipe. Thanks

Great recipe, always a hit with none left over! I only used half a pound of bacon. I double the pork and beans and add 1/4 cup of brown mustard and tobasco to taste. This recipe is a great dip for chips too. I love it!

I have been making this for years, lost the recipe (in the divorce - go figure - he never opened a can of soup in his life, but wanted this recipe!) and am happy to find it again. I use butter beans and great northern, but I surely don't use all the bacon. Gotta save some for breakfast!

Great recipe. I made a couple of changes. This recipe is so flexible so one can improvise. I followed the recipe and made a couple of changes. I disposed of half ot he bacon grease. I sauteed the onion for 4 minutes, and in the fifth minute I added one Jalapeno chile (sliced in 1/16 in squares) and seeds removed and a tablespoon of peanut butter. I also added one 15 oz can of diced tomatoes. Spicy but smoother. Baked in the oven, and then 15 minutes more with the lid off of the Dutch oven to reduce some of the liquid. Yummy. Bravo.
