Preheat oven to 350 deg F. Stir in remaining ingredients into the pot. Taste the sauce and season as necessary. Ladle beans into Dutch Oven. Place on baking tray to catch spills, cover and bake. After 1 hour remove lid, if the beans are still very runny check them every 15 minutes until desired consistency. Let the beans rest for 10 minutes before serving.
