DIRECTIONS

  • Wash beans and let them soak in water and half of the green pepper over night at room temperature.
  • Once beans have swollen, simmer on stove until they become soft (about 45 minutes).
  • Heat olive oil in pan and sauté onion, garlic, and the rest of the green pepper.
  • Add 1 cup of the coked beans to pan and mash well.
  • Return entire mixture to pot with beans.
  • Add salt, pepper, oregano, bay leaf, and sugar.
  • Cover and return to boil.
  • Simmer for 1 hour longer.
  • Add vinegar and dry wine, cover and simmer for one hour longer.
  • If beans are still too wet after this time, cook uncovered until they thicken.
  • Remove bay leaf and top with olive oil prior to serving.
