Slow-Cooked Bean Medley Recipe

I often change the variety of beans in this classic recipe, using whatever I have on hand to total five 15- to 16-ounce cans. The sauce makes any combination delicious! It's a gluten-free side dish that's popular with everyone. —Peggy Gwillim, Strasbourg, Saskatchewan
