 Categories: Cantina, Soup

      1/4 c  vegetable oil
        2    yellow onions -- diced

  :          (ripe Romas)
      1/2 sm red (Spanish) onion --
  :          finely diced
      1/4 c  fresh cilantro -- coarsely
  :          chopped
        1    limes -- juiced
  :          Salt and pepper

  Sort through the beans and discard any misshapen beans or stones.
  Rinse well. Place the beans in a saucepan and add the water. Bring to
  a boil, reduce the heat to medium-low, cover and simmer until the
  smallest bean is cooked through and creamy inside, about 1 1/2 hours.
  Remove from the heat and set aside.
  In a large saucepan over medium heat, warm the vegetable oil. Add the
  onions, salt and pepper and saute until the onions are lightly
  browned, about 10 minutes. Add the garlic and saute for 1-2 minutes
  longer. Add the beans and their liquid and the stock or water. Bring
  to a boil, reduce the heat to medium and simmer uncovered, stirring
  occasionally, until the beans start to break apart, 20-30 minutes.
  Remove the beans from the heat and let cool slightly.
  Meanwhile, make the salsa: In a bowl, stir together the tomatoes,
  onion, cilantro, lime juice and salt and pepper to taste. Cover and
  refrigerate until you are ready to serve.
  Working in batches, transfer the bean mixture to a blender and puree
  until smooth. Transfer the puree to a clean saucepan and reheat over
  low heat, stirring frequently, until hot.(If not serving immediately,
  keep warm over very low heat, stirring often.)
  Ladle the soup into warmed shallow bowls and top each serving with a
  spoonful of salsa and a dollop of crema or sour cream.
