I grew up eating it, but the Lima Bean Casserole was not prepared in a crock-pot.   

Since I am a huge crock-pot fan, I just had to try making Crock Pot Lima Bean Casserole.




A lot of women purchase shoes or clothes, not me.  I buy Crock-pots and cookbooks

On any day, I would choose a new cookbook over a new pair of shoes or piece of clothing.  There is nothing like seeing the smiles on friends and family when they are enjoying something I have prepared to eat.  This is why I get so excited to try new recipes, and what makes it even better is trying them in my crock-pot.  If you have eaten at my house, I probably used my crock-pot to prepare at least one of the dishes on the menu. I have several crock-pots, and many days they are all full. Lima Bean Casserole is a deliciously creamy, cheesy side dish.  It turned out just as creamy and delicious as normal.

I would love to hear from you, especially if you have never had a Lima Bean Casserole.   I am just curious to find out if Lima Bean Casserole is just a southern dish.  

Crock-pot Lima Bean Casserole
Mix the soup, milk, mayo, cheese, celery, Worcestershire Sauce, Cajun seasoning, salt, pepper.  Add the beans to the soup and cheese mixture.

French’s Onions to the top of the lima beans.  Cook on low 3 hours. 

Lima Bean Casserole Recipe

  • 1-10 ounce can Cheddar Cheese Soup

  • 1/2 cup milk

  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise

  • 1-10 ounce package frozen Lima Beans, completely thawed

  • 3/4 cup chopped celery

  • 1 TB Worcestershire Sauce

  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese

  • 6 ounce

    the container of French’s Fried Onions (1 cup to mix inside the recipe and the rest to top the lima bean casserole)

  1. Mix all these ingredients in a large bowl except for 1 cup French Fried Onions.

  2. Spray a crock-pot (I used a 5-quart crock-pot) with a cooking spray.

  3. Pour the ingredients into the crock-pot

  4. Top with the remaining French Fried Onions.

  5. This recipe only serves 6 to 8.  You may want to double it!

Cook on low for 2 – 1/2 hours.  The Lima beans will be bubbling around the edges when they are done. Turn the crock-pot to warm until you are ready to serve them.

  1. The recipe doesn’t say anything about the Cajun spice. (Just FYI)
    I took it to work for our Christmas luncheon and had folks asking for the recipe. Thanks!

    • Lori,

      I am glad you enjoyed these Crock-Pot Lima Beans. They are one of my husbands favorite side dishes.

      I am sorry that I did not reply sooner. I live in Arkansas and we went to a wedding in Alabama. I am just getting home and catching up on everything.

      I am planning for next year 2014 and would love to hear what kind of recipes you would like for me to post about. Crock-Pot recipes? Healthier recipes? Kid Friendly recipes? Easy Recipes? Pressure Cooker recipes? Casseroles? Skillet Dishes? Sandwiches? Or do you have another idea? Please leave me a comment and let me know.

  2. This recipe totally caught my eye! I live in northeast Indiana and I have always loved limas. But, I have never heard of a lima bean casserole. I am trying this the first chance I get! At first glance of the picture, i thought it was bacon, which piqued my interest too, but then realized it’s the fried onions. Bacon might be an idea to add as well. Food for thought! Thanks for sharing & can’t wait to try it!

  3. I love Lima Beans, but never did have it in a casserole believe it or not. It looks delicious and seriously always looking for new crock pot meals, so yes I am pinning and hoping to try soon. Thanks as always, Diane!! 🙂

    • Janine,
      Thank you for stopping by. My husband loves these creamy cheesy Lima Beans. They only take about 3 hours on low in the crock-pot before they start bubbling around the edges. This recipes definitely frees up oven space.
      Blessings and have a great day!
