Instructions
  1. Pick through beans to remove bad beans. Soak beans overnight in cold water. Drain and rinse.
  2. In a large soup pot or dutch oven, stir together the beans, water, green pepper, onion, vegetable oil, bay leaves, garlic, and salt. Bring to a boil, cover, and boil for 1 hour.
  3. Reduce heat and simmer, covered, for 3 to 4 hours, or until beans are very tender. Stir occasionally and add water if needed (if water level drops below the top of the beans).
  4. Remove about ⅔ of the beans and set aside. Use a spoon to mash the remaining beans against the side of the pot. Return the set-aside beans to the pot, stir, and heat through.
  5. Remove bay leaves and stir in vinegar or lemon juice when ready to serve.
  6. Serve over rice. Garnish with sliced pimento and lemon wedges.

Baja-Style Salmon Tacos
Instructions
  1. Preheat grill or oven broiler (with the rack 3 inches from heat source) on high temperature.
  2. Prepare taco filling by combining all ingredients.  Let stand for 10–15 minutes to blend the flavors.
  3. To prepare the marinade, combine the oil, lime juice, chili powder, cumin, coriander, and salt in a bowl. 
  4. Place salmon fillets in a flat dish with sides.  Pour marinade evenly over fillets.
  5. Place salmon fillets on grill or broiler.  Cook for 3–4 minutes on each side, until fish flakes easily with a fork in the thickest part (minimum internal temperature of 145 °F).  Remove from the heat and set aside for 2–3 minutes.  Cut into strips.
  6. To make each taco, fill one tortilla with ¾ cup filling and one salmon fillet.
