This is a wonderful casserole to take to large gatherings. When my son was a teenager his friends used to ask me to make "hot bean salad", their name for this dish. Spanish Beans are better mixed together the day before and refrigerate overnight to allow the flavors to marry. Bring to room temperature then bake. Also freezes well!
