Combine all but seasonings in pressure cooker, fill with water to cover by 3 inches and add salt. Pressure cook for 90 minutes. Release pressure, and simmer while adding spices to taste.
The Jalapenos will add a lot of heat, so not much cayenne is really necessary. I generally use the following procedure for spicing a batch of black beans.
Salt until the batch tastes lightly salted (careful, beans go from undersalted to oversalted very quickly)
Add 2-4 tablespoons of dried Garlic powder and taste.
Add approximately 1-2 tablespoons of cumin, 2-4 of cayenne, and about 1/4 cup of Chili Powder. Simmer, and adjust to your liking.
Good on its own, or combined with sour cream.
This is not a "restaurant" recipe, it's a bachelor recipe. These beans can be made in large batches, store well in the freezer (I use disposable containers), are very healthy and filling, and act well as a "staple" part of your diet. Made well, they can be combined with some blanched asparagus and a piece of salmon for an "emergency" guest meal. The recipe is designed for easy bulk cooking that will supply a healthy base diet.
