Adapted from a recipe in the cookbook 'Flavors of Belize'. Belize has a small Arab/Lebanese population and it has contributed to and influenced Belize's melting pot cuisine. Black beans or garbanzo beans can replace the kidney beans if desired. Note: the site does not recognize the ingredient 'recado rojo'. You will need a half teaspoon of it for this recipe.
