Baked beans were meant to be doctored up to suit a cook’s taste, so feel free to make these with more or less sugar, a spicier salsa or mustard, and add-ins such as soy sausage or soy hot dogs.
1. Soak beans in 6 cups water overnight. Drain; reserve soaking liquid.
2. Coat Dutch oven with cooking spray, and heat over low heat. Add onions, cover, and cook 15 minutes, or until browned. Stir in 1 cup soaking liquid. Simmer 5 minutes, scraping up onion bits stuck to pot.
3. Stir in remaining ingredients and 5 cups water. Cover, and cook 1½ hours. Uncover; simmer 1 hour more, or until sauce has thickened.
