                                          • Heat oil in a large stock pot.
                                          • Add onions, garlic, bell peppers, green chilies, sugar, black pepper, oregano, and Old Bay seasoning. Simmer uncovered over medium-high heat for 2 minutes, stirring occasionally.
                                          • Add vegetable broth, water, tomatoes, and about 2 lb 8 oz (1 qt 2 cups) beans. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium. Simmer uncovered for 10-12 minutes.
                                            Set aside remaining 2 lb 8 oz of beans for step 5.
                                          • Critical Control Point: Heat to 140 °F or higher for at least 15 seconds.

                                          • Add about 3 lb 5 oz (1 qt 2 cup) pureed beans to soup mixture. Stir well and simmer on low heat for 45 minutes until soup has a thicker consistency.
                                          • Pour about 12 lb 13 oz (1 gal 2 qt 1 cup) soup into a half deep steam table pan (12¾” x 10½” x 6”).
                                            For 25 servings, use 1 pan.
                                            For 50 servings, use 2 pans.
                                          • Critical Control Point: Hold for hot service at 140 °F or higher.
