How to Make Cuban Black Bean Soup
1Soak beans in water to cover by 3 inches for 8 hours or overnight. Overnight is best.

3Bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer, cover, and cook until beans are tender, about 2 hours
4Meanwhile, make the sofrito: In a large skillet, heat olive oil over medium heat.
5Add bell peppers and cook until softened, about 5 minutes.
6Add onions and cook until tender, about 10 minutes.
7Add garlic, oregano, cumin, and salt to taste, and cook 2 minutes.
8Puree sofrito in a blender (in batches).
9Add sofrito and sugar to pot with beans and simmer for 20 to 30 minutes.
10Stir in sherry and season with salt to taste. Remove bay leaves.
11Serve topped with red onion, cilantro, and a dollop of Mexican crema or sour cream.
