    jc12972's Note:

    Growing up Grandma Irma would make rice and beans at least once a week. As I little girl I loved them and still love them as an adult. *Note: You can use red kidney beans or pink beans if you don't like the roman beans. Additional Note: This is not a weeknight after work dish. It's time consuming but worth it. I will be posting another stewed bean recipe using canned beans that cook up in a flash for you busy bodies ;-)

Cook for 1/2 hour on medium heat partially covered, then 1/2 hour on medium heat uncovered (or until Calabaza is tender). Taste for seasoning, add water as needed.
