  • 2 oz. semisweet chocolate, finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoon lime juice
  • Sour cream and roughly chopped cilantro, to garnish
  1. Put beans and bay leaf into a large pot and cover with 3″ water; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low; cook, covered, and stirring occasionally, until beans are tender, 60-90 minutes. Drain beans, discarding bay leaf; set aside.

Using a slotted spoon, transfer beef to a bowl. Add garlic and onions to pan; cook, stirring occasionally, until golden, about 4 minutes. Add tomato paste; cook, stirring until slightly caramelized, about 2 minutes. Add reserved sauce, cook until slightly reduced, about 3 minutes.
