4  15 ounce cans great northern beans
2  15 ounce cans mixed beans (see hints below)
1 onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 tablespoons water
½ cup molasses
1/3 cup ketchup
¼ cup vegetarian Worcestershire sauce
¼ cup brown sugar
3 tablespoons maple syrup
2 tablespoons dry mustard
1 teaspoon paprika
1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
Dash liquid smoke (optional)

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.

Hints: 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.
