Place the beans and spring water in a heavy pot and bring to a boil uncovered. Reduce heat to low, cover and cook the beans until tender about 45 minutes. Drain bread beans and rinse well. Set aside to cool. 

Spear chiles with skewers and place over an open flame. Place in a paper sack and set aside for 20 minutes. Clean peppers. Finely minced.
