Cuban Black Beans

I was making dinner for Taylor and decided to do a 
Caribbean themed dinner.
I might these beans and the crispy fish.
The beans started from bagged, beans.
I had never used those before and you do have to soak them for a while,
but it was well worth it for taste and texture.


1 lb. Black Beans
¼ C Olive Oil
1 large Onion, chopped
1 medium Green Bell Pepper, chopped
6 cloves Garlic, minced
5 C Water
1 (6oz.) can Tomato Paste
1 (4oz.) jar Diced Pimentos, drained
1 Tbsp Vinegar
2 tsp Salt
1 tsp White Sugar
1 tsp Black Pepper

Soak beans 8 hours or overnight in water. 
Enough water to cover

In 8 hours, or the next day. Drain beans.
Heat Oil in a pot over medium heat, sauté Onion, Green Pepper, and Garlic
until tender.

Stir drained Beans, Water, Tomato Paste, Pimentos, and Vinegar into Onion mixture.
Season with Salt, Sugar, and Pepper.
Bring to a boil. Cover, Reduce heat, and simmer 1 ½ hrs stirring occasionally,
until beans are tender.

It isn't hard recipe, just takes a lot of time.
Can be eaten plain, or with Cheese, Salsa,
