1 Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2 Drain beans and place in a large bowl. Place the onion, garlic and water in a small saucepan and cook until softened and water has evaporated. Add to beans. Add remaining ingredients and mix well. Transfer to a covered casserole dish. Bake covered for 1 hour, then remove cover and bake an additional 15 minutes.
Hint: Mixed beans are sometimes called chili beans. They are usually a variety of kidney, pinto and black beans. Or use your own variation of canned beans in this recipe, 6 cans total. These are always a favorite at potlucks.
