To prepare Toasted Cumin and Black Pepper Rub, in fry pan, place 1/4 cup cumin seeds, 2 tablespoons dried oregano, 1 tablespoon black peppercorns, 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon sugar. Place over medium heat and toast, stirring, about 2 minutes.

Transfer to spice grinder and pulse until smooth. Borracho Beans: Thoroughly wash 1 cup dried pinto beans cover with water and soak overnight. Drain and rinse beans, place in medium saucepan and add water to cover beans by about 3 inches. Place over low heat and simmer until just tender, about 1-1/2 hours, adding more water if necessary to keep beans covered. Drain. In large fry pan over medium-heat, place 1 tablespoon vegetable oil, 1/4 onion (diced) and 6 serrano chilies with seeds (minced).

Stir in 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro leaves just before serving.
