On baking sheet, broil red and yellow peppers, turning often, until charred and blistered all over, 20 minutes. Let cool enough to handle. Peel, seed and quarter peppers; thinly slice crosswise. Transfer to small roasting pan.

Meanwhile, in skillet, heat oil over medium heat; cook onions, garlic, salt, oregano, pepper and hot pepper flakes, stirring occasionally, until softened, about 8 minutes. Add to peppers. Stir in beans and bean cooking liquid.

Cover and bake in 375°F (190°C) oven for 2 hours. Stir in vinegar; bake, uncovered, for 10 minutes. Stir in basil.
