Recipe For Black Beans


2 cups dry black beans, soaked overnight
1 onion, chopped
1 green bell pepper, chopped
5 cloves garlic, chopped
2 bay leaves
1 tablespoon salt
1 tablespoon ground cumin
1 tablespoon dried oregano
1/2 cup white cooking wine
1/4 cup distilled white vinegar
1/4 cup olive oil


In a medium stockpot over medium-high heat, cover beans with water and cook with onion, green pepper, garlic, bay leaves, salt, cumin and oregano. Boil until beans are tender, about 1 hour. Add water as necessary so that the beans don’t dry out or scorch.

When beans are cooked, stir in wine, vinegar and oil.
