Southwestern Bean Gratin
Robert McGrath, the chef and owner of Roaring Fork in Scottsdale, Arizona, often pairs this regional twist on Boston baked beans with corn bread and a salad. You can substitute almost any type of dried beans for the varieties suggested in this recipe. Or, use only one type of bean for a simpler version. The beans need to soak overnight, so plan accordingly.
