1/2 Photos of Puerto Rican Rice and Beans (Pink Beans)
Michelle Figueroa's Note:
Again, another recipe from my boyfriend. The Goya brand products in this recipe can usually be found in the international section or Mexican section of your grocery store. Although I use Pink Beans for this recipe, please feel free to substitute Goya Kidney Beans or Pinto Beans.
