Number of Servings: 12


    Beans, black, 3 cup (remove)
    Green Peppers (bell peppers), 0.5 cup, chopped (remove)
    Onions, raw, 1 cup, chopped (remove)
    cumin spice, 1 tbsp (remove)
    Oregano, ground, 1 tbsp (remove)
    Olive Oil, .25 cup (remove)
    Cider Vinegar, 2 tbsp (remove)
    Pepper, black, 1 tsp (remove)
    Salt, 1 tsp (remove)
    Granulated Sugar, 1 tsp (remove)
    Garlic, 4 clove (remove)
    baking soda 1 tsp


Rinse beans and add baking soda and let it soak for 1 hr. You could also do this the night before and leave them soaking all night. This will speed the cooking time. The next day or after soaking, drain water. Add water about 5 cups. I place my beans in a pressure cooker and cook for 15 minutes. You can put in pan and boil until tender for about an hour.
In the meantime, chop onion, pepper and garlic. In a pan, saute them with 1/2 the olive oil until onions are translucent. Add cumin, oregano, salt and pepper and stir. Add mixture to cooked beans. Add sugar and cook for about 10 minutes. Then add vinegar (this will thicken the beans) cook for another 10 minutes. Turn off and before serving add the rest of olive oil. You can add chopped cilantro leaves when you serve it. Enjoy
