  1. In a large pot, cover the beans with water and bring to a boil. Remove from the heat, cover and let the beans soak for 1 hour.

  2. Drain and rinse the beans and return them to the pot. Add the broth, bacon, garlic, jalapeños, thyme, oregano, bay leaves and 2 quarts of water and bring to a boil. Simmer over moderately low heat until the beans are very tender, 2 hours and 30 minutes. Discard the jalapeños and bay leaves. Pick out and mash the garlic cloves, then stir them back into the beans. Season the beans with salt and pepper and serve.
