    La_Nanita's Note:

    These beans are a staple in my family's nutrition. I make them at least once a week, and as with beans they taste better the next day so I make plenty for left overs. You will need a pressure cooker for this one.

    My Private Note


    Serves: 10



    Units: US | Metric

    • 1 lb dried red beans
    • 2 carrots, diced
    • 1 plantain, diced
    • 1 (0.01 lb) envelope sazon goya
    • 1 tablespoon salt



    1. 1
      Wash beans well with water and take out any debris.
    2. 2
      Place in pressure cooker and cover with water up to the max line (approx 12 cups for a 5 quart pressure cooker).
    3. 3
      Place lid on cooker creating a tight seal cook on high for 35 minutes (this will soften the beans).
    4. 4
      Take pressure cooker of the stove and allow steam to escape completely before opening.
    5. 5
      Add carrots, plantain, sazon, and salt.
    6. 6
      If you like your beans more soupy (which I do) add more water to replace what has been lost, if you do not they will be rather on the dry side and you will have to watch more carefully on the next step because they have a higher risk of burning.
    7. 7
      Cover again and cook on med-high for 20-30 minutes.
    8. 8
      While beans are cooking sauté the tomato, onions, and cilantro in the oil add a pinch of salt.
    9. 9
      Once the beans are done add the hogado and test the beans for softness, if necessary cover and cook an additional 5-10 minutes.
    10. 10
      Serve with white rice and the meat of your choice, enjoy!

      I loved your recipe! My beans were out of this world! I'm not much of a bean person but these were the best beans I ever made! I'm speechless!

      These are as "authentic" as they come! For personal preference, I used double the amount of sazon and cooked them in the morning for the evening's meal (so the flavors would have a chance to meld). Anyone will tell you frijoles are better the next day! These taste very much like what we get in the restaurant, only better.
