  1. In a cast iron or other heavy pot with a cover that can go from stovetop to oven, saute onion, green pepper and cilantro stems on high, stirring constantly, until onion becomes translucent.
  2. Add oregano, cumin, chili powder and bay leaves and saute another minute.
  3. Add garlic and salt, saute briefly.
  4. Add a couple of tablespoons of water to stop garlic from cooking.
  5. Immediately add beans and salsa, lime juice and hot sauce, and lower heat to medium, stirring frequently.
  6. When mixture begins bubbling, lower heat again, until just simmering. Stir occasionally and simmer for about 1/2 hour.
