Here is a recipe for dried beans from a good friend in Minnesota, a bit Mexican!
Trudies BBQ'd Baked Beans

2 cups dried lima beans [big fat white flat bean] Soak overnight
250 gm bacon, speck or Kaiserfleisch [salt pork]1/2 lb.
1 med. onion, chopped
1 tsp dried mustard powder
1 1/2 - 2 tsp Mexican chilli powder [chilli powder] depends how hot you like it!!
1 clove garlic
2 tsp worchestershire sauce
1 tin tomato soup
1/2 cup vinegar [apple cider vinegar]
2 tblsp br. sugar
Salt & pepper to taste
2 chorizo sausage, sliced & sauteed** optional
Drain soaked beans, put is saucepan & cover with cold water & simmer till just tender about 30+min. Drain & save cooking liquid.
Saute bacon, onion & garlic. Add remaining ingr. except beans & cook 5 min. Stir in beans, pour in casserole with chorizo or large cast iron fry pan is fine, place in 180 [350F] oven uncovered for 2 hrs. When it starts to dry off add some of the cooking liquid & stir.

Great side dish or nice filling for baked jacket potato with sour cream, grated cheese, coleslaw & extra bacon!

Here's a yummy bean casserole I just tried for the first time Sunday. It was a big hit. With the ground beef and can be a main course or a DH asked for it again and my friend wanted the recipie! (Just like I did when I had it at another friend's house.) Good for pot lucks and gatherings and really easy.

Calico Beans
4 oz. bacon diced
1 lb. lean ground beef
½ cup chopped onion
1 16 oz. can kidney beans, drained
1 21 oz. can pork and beans, drained
1 15 oz. can lima beans, drained
½ cup brown sugar
½ cup ketchup
1 tsp. prepared mustard
½ tsp. salt
1 TBSP vinegar

In a skillet, cook bacon until crispy. Remove to paper towels to drain. Discard drippings and in same skillet, cook beef and onion together until beef is brown and onion tender. Drain fat. Combine ground beef and bacon with all remaining ingredients. Spoon into 2 qt. casserole. Bake uncovered at 300 degrees or until beans are as thick as desired. May add garlic, cayenne, or chili powder for extra spice before cooking if desired.

*I used extra lean beef and it worked great.
