Sauté the onion in a large pot over medium heat for 8 minutes. Add water 1 to 2 tablespoons at a time, as needed, to keep the onion from sticking. Add the garlic, ground cumin, ancho chile powder, and cayenne pepper. Cook 1 minute.
Add the tomato paste, pinto beans, black beans, garbanzo beans, diced tomatoes, sea salt and black pepper to taste, and 4 cups water. Cook 20 to 25 minutes.
