This recipe was quick and easy to make, which I liked. I made the version with black beans, because I didn't have any red beans in the house. But I have to admit that I found it very bland. I added cumin to give it more flavour.

I used canned kidney beans and made without the coconut milk, great taste. I didn't see the red beans listed as basic ingredient, but figured that would be correct. Thanks for a great and savory dish. Made ZWT 7, Shady Ladies.

I would think that 1 cup of uncooked red beans or aduki beans is the missing ingredient, But I used a 16 ounces can red beans. If you use dried beans try adding a small 1" x 1" piece of kombu seaweed to tenderize the beans and add good for you minerals.
Very easy to make and easier to eat! I used tri color peppers, brown jasmine rice. Part of my Menu #66619 Thanks!
