Soak beans overnight, or for at least 6 hours, in water to cover (or boil beans for 2 minutes in water to cover and set aside, covered, to soak for 2 hours (older beans will need to soak longer).
Drain and rinse beans and place in large cooking pot with finely chopped medium onion, garlic, and dry spices. Add enough water to cover, plus 1-1/2 inches. Bring to a simmer, stirring occasionally, until beans are very tender, 1 hour or more (longer for older beans). If necessary, add water in small increments to avoid burning and maintain simmer.
As beans cook, saute green pepper, celery, and remaining onion in a small amount of vegetable oil until they are translucent and celery is tender.
When beans are done and still very hot, combine all ingredients in a large bowl or pot and blend well. Allow flavors to marry for at least 1 hour. Serve hot, or enjoy reheated later.
