  1 1/4           cups  dried black beans
  1 1/2      teaspoons  salt
  3        tablespoons  canola oil
  1              small  onion — chopped fine
  4             cloves  garlic — minced
  24            ounces  canned tomatoes — chopped
  1                     jalapeno chile pepper — minced
  2        tablespoons  fresh cilantro — chopped fine

Soak the beans overnight.  Drain the liquid, bring to a boil, reduce the heat and simmer about 1 1/2 hours, or until beans are tender.  Drain.  Take about half the beans out, puree with 4 cups of water and add back to pot.

Put the oil in a skillet and heat over medium-high heat.  Add the onion and garlic and cook, stirring, until they are golden.  Add the chopped tomatoes and their liquid and the jalapenos, and bring to a simmer.  Cover and cook gently for about 10 minutes.  Add the tomato mixture and the cilantro to the beans.  Bring to a simmer and cook about 5 minutes.
