 1.  Cook beans according to basic directions. 2. Heat peanut oil in a large
 saucepan and saute onions, garlic, green peppers, and celery.
 Add the bay leaves, thyme, cumin, paprika, tomatoes, vinegar, and some bean
 broth. Simmer vegetables until they are tender. 3. Shortly before serving,
 add the beans with the remaining broth, hot pepper sauce, and salt. Bring
 to a boil, lower heat, and simmer about 5 minutes. Serve over steaming
 rice. Serves 6 to 8.  Delicious with a green salad.
 
  This recipe will work for anyone interested in Vegetarian ideas, but
 definitely NOT for those who do NOT want beans in their diet.
