1 lg onion
1 green pepper
2T Cumin
1T chili powder

In a large pot or bowl place washed beans. Fill with enough water to double the volume of the dry beans. Soak 24 hours. Rinse beans and soak the beans the same way for another 12 hours. Rinse beans again and place them in a large crick pot. Turn on high. Dissolve boullion cubes in boiling water and mix into beans in crock pot. Cook for four hours in high. Stir and add more water if needed. Continue to cook on low for four to six more hours.

Chop onions and peppers. Heat a large skillet and add olive oil to coat. Saute onions and peppers until softened then mix in spices and mix well. Set aside to cool.

Mash beans in crock pot with a potato masher until at least 50% are broken down and mixture is well blended. Mix in onion/pepper/spice saute. Place in a serving dish.

Serve with warm flour tortillas, lettuce, fresh chopped peppers & onions, salsa, shredded cheese and sour cream.
