Meanwhile, heat the oil in a 10-inch, heavy sauté pan (with high sides) over medium-high heat. When hot, add the onions, peppers, celery, and garlic, and sauté until the vegetables
are softened, about 6 minutes. Add the beans, tomato paste, vinegar, honey, 1/4 plus 1/8 teaspoon salt, 1/4 teaspoon cumin, 1/8 teaspoon chili powder, and 5 grinds pepper. Cook, stirring to combine the ingredients well, for another 5 minutes. Set aside off the heat.
