 Place the beans in a large saucepan. Add boiling water just to cover and let set
1 hour. Drain the beans, cover with fresh water, and bring to boil over high
heat. Reduce heat to medium, cook, partially cover, until tender but not soft -
about 50 minutes to an hour. Drain and set aside.
 Heat oil in large saucepan over medium-high heat.
 When hot but not smoking, add onions, garlic, bell pepper, jalapeno. Reduce heat
to medium and cook, stirring frequently, until onions turn translucent - about 9
minutes. Add reserved beans, 2 cups water, tomatoes, tomato sauce, spices and
oregano. Mix well and bring to boil. Reduce heat to medium-low, cook, partially
covered, 1-1/2 hours. Add millet and remaining 2 cups water, stir, and continue
cooking until millet and beans are cooked through but not mushy, the flavors have
mellowed and chili is rich and aromatic - at least 2 hours. Stir occasionally,
being sure mixture doesn't stick to bottom of pan. Salt to taste.
 To serve, lade the chili into warmed bowls, and either top with yogurt, scallions
and oranges or pass them seperately.
