Directions:
Sort dry beans for rocks,etc. Clean and rinse well. Add distilled water 1 1/2 inches over beans.
Two methods of soaking; best method is to soak over night with the bayleaf. Add a little water if necessary. Quick Soak Method is to boil beans for 2 minutes. Remove from heat.Let stand covered for 1 hour.
Simmer beans with bay leaf, salt and pepper in a large covered pot for 2 hours approximately; beans will appear tender.
In a skillt or pan saute over medium heat in oil until transparent onions, pepper, and garlic, stirring often for 5-6 minutes, add sauce and oregano, cook 2 more minutes. Add mixture to pot of beans. Add Goya packages, and can of collard greens. If desired, add potatoes. Simmer 1/2 hour to hour slightly uncovered. Consistency should be thick, not watery. Enjoy.

Personal Notes:
Shihan Steve loves these beans. Coba beans are originally of Peru, my husband, Peruvian, is also a big fan of them. I hope you will be too. I make them healthy. You of course do not have to use all organice or distilled water if you do not want to, but I found, doing so, made them taste so much better. Also, you can use cubed ham if you like. My preference is to not use meat.
