    1. 1
      Sauté the bacon until crispy. Remove bacon and reserve for another use, but leave the bacon drippings in the pan.
    2. 2
      Add the chopped tomatoes, chopped scallions, and cumin to the pan. Sauté them in the bacon fat until they are soft, about 5 to 8 minutes.
    3. 3
      Add the beans (including liquid) to the pan. Add sugar, water, and the chicken bouillon. Bring to a boil, and simmer for 10 minutes more, until most of the water has evaporated and the beans have thickened.
    4. 4
      Remove from heat and stir in the chopped cilantro.
    5. 5
      Serve with rice.

      I liked this recipe very well, except for the sugar. As it cooks, the sweetness from the sugar lessens, but I still don't think it adds anything to the recipe. This is a short-cut because you get some meat flavor from the bacon and you use canned beans, otherwise it has all the elements of Colombian-style beans.

      Really a very nice recipe that didn't take all day. I made 2 servings but used all of a 14 oz tin of the beans. Good flavor, easy to make and you could use it as a side for many things. Made for Culinary Quest 2014.
