    Add tomato paste and cook until color changes from bright red to rust. Add beans, tomato sauce and stewed tomatoes.
  • 4

    Bring to a simmer and stir in oregano, chili powder, cumin and bay leaves. Season with salt to taste.
  • 5

    Place Dutch oven directly on the grill grate and cook 45-60 minutes, adding liquid (stock, water or beer) as needed to prevent it from getting too dry.
