This is but one way of making Cuban black beans. Notice that the onions, garlic, cumin and peppers are not added to the cooking beans, but rather made into a sofrito (sauce) and then added to the cooked beans.

1 green or red pepper
1 Tsp cumin
1. Soak beans for 1 hour and pressure cook for 45 minutes until almost tender.

4. Simmer for 5-10 minutes.
5. Serve with steamed rice
