I found this recipe in an online forum. 
Spicy Mixed Beans

Mix 2 parts each of Kidney beans, Pinto beans and white beans (navy or whatever) with one part of black beans.

Use 1 cup mixed beans in a quart or 1/2 cup for a pint.  Rinse the beans before putting them in the jar but no soaking or cooking beforehand is necessary. If you want to reduce the *ahem* melodious properties, you can do an overnight soak or a quick soak.   You can go with a little less beans if you want a more soupy result. Don't add the salt if you want your beans a little more mushy.

Then add to each quart (halve this for pints):
1/4 cup dried minced onions
1 Tbsp of chili powder
1/2 tsp cumin
1/4 tsp garlic granules or powder
1 tsp salt

Fill to one inch headspace with hot water.  Place in a pressure canner and process 90 mins for quarts and 75 mins for pints at whatever pounds pressure for your altitude.
