1 rinse and simmer beans on medium-low heat for 2 to 3 hours until tender in 4 cups lightly salted water.
2 sautÈ tomatoes, garlic, and jalapeno in a little water until tomatoes are thoroughly cooked.
3 place three-quarters of the beans and remaining bean liquid, along with the tomatoes, in a blender or food processor and puree on a "course" setting, stopping before the beans lose all of their texture.  You will want some small pieces of beans to remain.  Add remaining beans, vegetable stock, oil, and spices, tasting along the way.  Heat and serve.

Ingredients:

- 1 cup white beans
- 4 cups water
- 2 medium tomatoes, diced
- 1 to 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 jalapeno pepper, finely chopped
