Cook the dry beans (see note below). Rinse and drain the cooked or canned beans and set aside.

In a 4½-quart Dutch oven, cook the onion, garlic, peppers, chili powder and cumin in hot oil until tender, stirring occasionally. Stir in the drained beans, tomatoes, lemon, oregano, salt (omit if using the canned beans) and pepper sauce, if desired. Bring to boiling, reduce heat, and simmer, uncovered, about 15 minutes or until thick. Remove the lemon.

In a blender container or food processor bowl, place one third of the mixture, cover, and blend until smooth. Repeat with remaining beans. Return to the pan and heat through.

In the meantime, wrap tortillas in foil and warm in a 350 F. oven for about 10 minutes. Place about ½ cup of the bean mixture onto each tortilla.

Fold the edges over to form a packet.

Serve with salsa and guacamole. If desired, top with chopped tomato and snipped cilantro.

To cook the dry beans, in a 4 ½-quart Dutch oven, combine beans and enough water to cover. Bring to boiling, then reduce heat and simmer, uncovered, for 2 minutes. Remove from heat, cover, and let stand for 1 hour. (Or without cooking, soak the beans overnight.) Drain the beans and rinse. In the same Dutch oven, combine the beans and 5 cups of water or vegetable broth. Bring to boiling, reduce heat, cover and simmer for 1 to 1 ½ hours or until tender. From WWiVNet.
