    Soak the beans in water overnight. Next day, in a
   large pot, simmer beans in 5 cups of water 1 hour or

   oil in a frying pan and saute the onions, green pepper
   and garlic until tender. Add the seasonings.
   
    When vegetables are browned, add them to the soup pot
   along with the tomatoes and cook another half hour.
    Add water if the soup is too thick. Before serving,
   add the lemon juice. Serve soup with a plate of corn
   chips, guacamole, and a fresh green salad.
