Simple, easy and economical, Member hlouisiana

I made this up in a hurry so didn't have time for the crockpot, just simmered on a low heat about 30 min., and it was still good. I didn't have the exact beans on hand so used 1 pork and beans, 1 garbanzos, 1 kidney, 1 black beans and 1 northern beans. Very colorful! My 92-year-old father-in-law who doesn't usually eat much came back for thirds!
