Spicy Black Beans

1/2 pound (1 cup) black beans, picked over
1 large onion, peeled and chopped
1 large green bell pepper, seeded and chopped
1 large red bell pepper, peeled and chopped
1 to 2 jalapeno peppers, seeded and finely chopped
1 3/4 cups water, vegetable stock or chicken stock
1/3 cup chopped cilantro
1 tsp dried oregano
1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
3/4 cup fresh salsa
2 tbsp lime juice
salt to taste

Rinse the beans and soak overnight or use a quick soak method (bring water to a boil, turn off heat and let beans sit for an hour or so before continuing).
Heat the oil in the bottom of a 4 quart or larger pressure cooker over medium-high heat. Add the onion and cook until onion softens, about 2 minutes. Add garlic and jalapeno and cook a minute or so more. Add the cilantro, oregano, beans, and pepper. Cover and lock the pressure cooker and bring to high pressure over high heat. Lower the heat to stabilize the pressure at high and cook for about 10 to 12 minutes. Remove the pressure cooker from heat and release the pressure with a slow or natural release method. Remove the cover and test beans for doneness. If necessary cover and return the pot to pressure and cook for another 2-3 minutes.
Stir in the fresh salsa and lime juice. Season with salt and additional pepper, if necessary. Serves 6

When I was young we used to go "skinny dipping"; now we just "chunky dunk"

“The value of doing something does not lie in the ease or difficulty, the probability or improbability of its achievement, but in the vision, the plan, the determination and the perseverance, the effort and the struggle which go into the project. Life is enriched by aspiration and effort, rather than by acquisition and accumulation.”

― Helen Nearing, The Good Life
