      1 sm Onion; finely minced
      1 ts New Mexican red chile

  SOAK THE BEANS overnight; drain. Transfer to a large soup pot, cover
  the beans with fresh water. Bring to a boil for 5 minutes, then drain

  new beans, longer for older beans. Season to taste with salt, then
  continue cooking until they are completely soft. Puree half the beans
  and cooking liquid at a time in the blender until smooth. Return the
  puree to the pot. Add the cream and reheat. Chop toasted pine nuts
  finely. Stir in the chopped herbs, reserving some of the chives.
  Ladle the soup into bowls and garnish with the remaining chives and
  the pine nuts.
