    JenniferK2's Note:

    Authentic Recipe, goes great with chicken or pork chops. Also can be used as a main dish - top with lettuce, tomato and avocado. When I serve it as a main dish, I always double the recipe and serve over Arroz Con Gandules in place of the white rice. Credit for this recipe goes to my good friend Michelle.

      We really enjoyed these new-to-me beans. Finding the ingredients led me on a _world tour_ of sorts - I found sofrito in the freezer section of one market and the pink beans and sazon Goya con cilantro and achiote in the ethnic aisle of another store. I made exactly as written, omitting the green olives, and mine was thickened and ready to eat in about 35 minutes. The texture of the beans is very similar to a pinto and the next time I make a pot of those, guess what will be added? ;-) Thanks for posting a recipe that was a little out of my comfort zone but pleased our taste buds immensely!
