    Dib's's Note:

    This classic Cuban stew is best served with plain white rice, black beans and fried plantains. Beer or a full-bodied red wine are excellent beverage choices.

      DiB's, this is very good. It does take a while to make but is worth it. The flavors blend nicely and I like the sweetness of the peppers which offset any burn from the onions. I added 2 chopped jalapenos and a chopped cayenne just because we like more heat, but it would great without. Thanks for posting this one. It's a keeper.
