  • 1 pound black beans

In a large stockpot, cover the beans with water, covering them by 2 inches. Add bay leaf, cumin, oregano, and Italian pepper. Simmer until the beans are tender, about 45 minutes.

After 45 minutes, remove the pepper.

In a saute pan, saute onions, red, and green peppers until translucent. Puree in a blender, this is the sofrito.
