    3 T olive oil
    1 medium onion, chopped
    2 medium green bell peppers, seeded and diced
    2 cloves garlic, minced
    2 t ground cumin
    1 t crushed oregano
    3 c canned black beans, drained and rinsed
    1 T lemon juice
    1/4 c orange juice

    salt and pepper to taste
    2 T dark rum (optional, not in nutrition info)
    2 bananas, sliced

1. In a large saucepan, heat the oil over medium heat. Add onion and saute, stirring occasionally, about 3 minutes. Add peppers and garlic and cook 3 minutes longer. Add cumin and oregano and cook briefly, stirring.

2. Add beans, lemon juice, 1 T of the orange juice, tomatoes, chopped banana, and salt and pepper to taste and simmer, covered, for 5 minutes, adding a bit of stock, water, or orange juice if needed to thin the mixture to desired consistency.

3. Mix 1 cup of the bean mixture with remaining orange juice (or optional dark rum) and mash to a paste with the back of a fork or in a food processor. Add the puree to the pot, set over low heat, cover and simmer about 20 minutes.
