    If you live in Texas the recipe is pretty simple.
    Go to HEB and buy a can of Wolf Brand.

    an upper case, or capital T, is a tablespoon. a small t is a teaspoon.

    the tomato sauce is basically a puree. DO NOT use tomato paste. the can says tomato sauce. Hunts makes a great can of sauce. and the beans are black beans, or habichuelas negras..

    slow cooking is the trick...it removes the bitterness from the tomatoes and the sauce..

    Very close to my recipe, I add a habanero for fire, and garnish with shredded cheddar, a dollop of sour cream and scallions.

    If you fancy more color, a red bell pepper as well as green is nice, and I also add habichuelas blancas, low- sodium when available.

    Goes well over jasmine rice, and next day even better over a bed of Tostados, nacho style.
    Oh snap, it is chili season, I am so excited.

    there are several local brands, and there is Goya, too. maybe fresh might work if you puree half a pound or so, but they have to be really ripe, or you will be cooking for a day to kill the bitterness and acid. tomatoes are not easy to work with.
