- Soak beans overnight then rinse several times.
- Add beans to a large pot, cover with water and cook until tender but not mushy, about 30-45 minutes.
- Put water and onions in a microwave dish and microwave for 1 minute.
- In a large casserole dish put everything else and mix well.
- Add the beans and onions and mix again.
- Bake uncovered in a 375 degree oven for 30-45 minutes.
