This is a typical dish served in Cuba or Puerto Rico, each country has their own method of preparation. You can flavor this dish with meat, but I left it out as I serve it as a side dish with my meats. It is an easy and healthy short cut and takes about 30 minutes to cook.

Directions

  1. Heat oil in a medium sauce pan, sauté onion,green pepper, and garlic.
  2. Sauté until tender@8-10 minutes.
  3. Add in remaining ingredients and stir until boiling, reduce heat and simmer until sauce is reduced@ 20 minutes.
  4. Serve over white rice.
  5. I like to mash a few of the beans with the back of a spoon to flavor the sauce.
  6. Note: if you do not have Sazòn Goya an appropriate substitute would be ground cumin, chicken bouillon, and garlic salt to taste.
