Soak beans in water for at least 1 hour, preferably overnight, then drain. In a another pan, cover beans with 2 inches of water. Tie the cilantro stems and cinnamon sticks together with a string and add the the beans, cover with 2 inches of water and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat, and simmer for about 2 hours, adding more water to cover with ½ inch at all times. When beans are soft, remove half and, using a fork, mash or blend with enough cooking water to make a smooth paste. Add the mashed beans, garlic, chili powder, and salt to the whole beans. Continue to cook until the mixture is thick and creamy, stirring occasionally, about 15 minutes.
