(This is real good and hot, so you may want to tone down hot spices and add
them last, to taste, if you can't tolerate the spicy heat.)

Wash beans and then soak for 12 hours. (I never soak beans and never have

Drain water. Fill a large pot with beans; add water to 1/2 inch above

to 2 1/2 hours, covered. Serve over cooked brown rice.
