    Chef #292364's Note:

    This is the way they do Beans and Rice in Belize. The recipe is from a native Belizean. It is a wonderful addition to Caribbean chicken and fish.

      I love "rice and beans," not to be confused with "beans and rice." This recipe is definitely for the former, and it is delicious. Followed the recipe to a T. It took me 2 hours to cook the beans, and an additional 15 minutes to cook the rice. For anyone interested, don't drain the beans after cooking--use the same water to cook the rice (that's what makes it "rice and beans").

      I thought the instructions were very confusing and need to be rewritten. My rice and beans came out good, but I wasn't sure if I was doing it right because the instructions were so vague.
