Instructions

  • Drain the beans and put them in a pot with enough cold water to cover them by a couple of inches. Add the bay leaf.

  • Heat a small skillet and add the cumin seeds. When they begin to color, add the oregano leaves and shake until they smell fragrant.

  • Simmer for 15minutes, then add this mixture to the beans and enough water to cover the beans by at least 1 inch.
  • Continue cooking the beans slowly until they are soft, about an hour. Check the water level to keep the beans covered and add more water, as needed.
  • When the beans are tender, add salt to taste, more chipotle if desired and rice vinegar or lime juice to taste.
  • Just before serving, add the chopped cilantro,. Serve with garnishes.
