This is my wife's recipe. I'm not a big bean eater, but this is SOOOOO good!!! IDK where she got it, but I'm putting on the Zaar for safe keeping!

This is just like my Mom's Three Bean Hotdish recipe...delicious!! I love how simple and yummy this recipe is...I think I could it this everyday if I let myself ;) The only thing I did differently was to leave out the Crisco, I just didn't think it need it and it turned out perfect. Great recipe!!
