    1 lb dry red beans, soaked overnight and drained
    6 cups water
    2 cups finely chopped onion
    3 cloves garlic, crushed
    1 cup finely chopped green pepper
    1 Tbsp chili powder
    2 teaspoons cayenne pepper (start with less, you can always add more!!)
    1/2 tsp dried oregano
    1/2 tsp cumin
    1 tsp salt (or to taste)
    1/2 tsp black pepper
    1 - 8oz can tomato sauce
    1 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce

    3 cups cooked brown rice


Combine drained beans, water, onion, and garlic in a large stockpot and bring to a boil for 12 minutes. Reduce heat and simmer for 1 hour. Add remaining ingredients except for rice. Stir to mix well. Simmer an additional 1-1.5 hours until beans are tender and liquid is thick. Spoon beans over rice to serve.

**Note** I have had better luck cooking this in a pressure cooker than on the stove. For this, reduce water to 4 cups, add everything to the pressure cooker, cover, and bring to full pressure. Reduce heat (keeping the pot at full pressure) for 40 minutes, then turn off heat.

**Another note** This can be made ahead and reheated on the stove or in a crockpot, for easy party serving.
