    1. 1
      Place the beans and bay leaves in a large pot and cover with 2 quarts of water. Bring to a boil then reduce to a simmer. Simmer, covered, for 1 1/2 to 2 hours or until tender. Add more water if necessary to keep the beans well covered.
    2. 2
      Meanwhile, heat the olive oil in a large frying pan and saute the peppers, shallots, onion and garlic over medium heat for about 15 minutes or until the onions are translucent.
    3. 3
      Add cumin, oregano and lime zest, and transfer to a blender or food processor. Puree until smooth.
    4. 4
      When the beans are almost tender, add the pureed mixture and the sugar and salt, and cook until tender, about 20-30 minutes.
    5. 5
      Before serving, add the dry sherry and cilantro. Serve topped with sour cream and diced red onions and with a lime wedge and Tobasco on the side.

      I made 1/2 the recipe. I used 2 large diced jalapenos in place of the canned chili`s for lower sodium and I skipped the salt.To puree the veggies I did use some of the liquid from the beans. I would have enjoyed more if the veggies were not pureed, and have added some carrots and celery. I did use yogurt in place of sour cream. Made for Pick A Chef Thanks!
