This is a Cuban-style dish, a one pot meal that is very easy and satisfying. You can also eat it wrapped in tortillas if you like.
Something else. Very, very good recipe. I made a few changes, however, to add flavour after reading some of the other reviews. 1: add 1 tsp. cumin powder to onions/garlic while cooking, 2: add diced mild chillies when you add the beans, 3: use stock (any kind) instead of water. Hope this helps! Thanks for a yummy recipe! - 29 Sep 2008
Excellent dish. I added a few chili flakes to give it a little kick but not too many (I didn't want it 'hot'). Also added a bay leaf and used stock as suggested by another user. It was ready in 30mins, and was delish! And it will be even better tomorrow, I'm sure. - 24 Mar 2010
Best lunch I've made/had in a long time. I was looking for a dish to prepare with the can of red kidney beans that has been sitting on the shelf for the longest time and I am glad this was it. Instead of using short grain rice, I used medium grain brown rice and it took twice as long to cook but it was totally worth the wait! Thanks! Will definitely make this wholesome dish again. - 04 Jul 2011
