Preparation / Directions:
Place beans and water in a large soup pot.
Bring to boil; cook for 2 minutes.
Remove from heat, cover, and let rest for about 45 minutes.
Return to heat. Add onion, garlic, green pepper, oregano, and cumin. Cover and let cook over low heat for 1 1/2 hours.
Add tomato paste, vinegar, and tamari. Cook an additional 30 minutes. Add chiles, rice, Tabasco, and coriander. Cook 10 minutes.
HELPFUL HINTS: This is a very spicy soup. Use less Tabasco and less coriander if you prefer your foods less spicy.
