DIRECTIONS

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Add cumin, oregano and lime zest, and transfer to a blender or food processor. Puree until smooth.
  • When the beans are almost tender, add the pureed mixture and the sugar and salt, and cook until tender, about 20-30 minutes.
  • 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.
