  1. In a medium stockpot, combine soaked beans (see Editor's Note), water, onion, green pepper, garlic, bay leaves, salt, cumin and oregano. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat; reduce heat to low. Simmer, covered, until beans are tender, about 1 hour. Stir occasionally and add water as necessary so that the beans don't dry out or scorch.
  2. When beans are tender, stir in wine, vinegar, and olive oil.


  • Editor's Note:
  • If you don't have time to soak the black beans overnight, use the quick-soak method: bring beans and water to a boil. Turn off heat and allow to stand for 1 hour before proceeding with recipe.

These beans were delicious until I added the vinegar and wine. Leave those two out and these beans get 5 stars!

First of all, I took the easy way out and used canned beans. I sautéed the onions, peppers and garlic in the olive oil, then added the bay leaf and seasonings. I also gave it a good glug of ch...

I would give this a 4.5 if I could. It was very good but I didn't add the last 3 ingredients: wine, vinegar, and oil.

The taste of this is decent, but Sheepcrk is right--you can't salt it if you use dry beans. This would be fine with canned beans, or adding the spices later, but it takes over five hours of boi...
