    Walltop's Note:

    Last summer our local mexican vegetable market had Peruvian beans and I went looking for authentic recipes to use them. The original recipe did not have garlic but I am one of those cooks that believes there can never be too much garlic or onions.

      delightful. i used this recipe to recreate flavors from my trip to peru. i used canned chickpeas and mashed up about 3/4 of the can. i also used a mexican rice mix instead of the brow rice and added jalopeno. try using veg oil instead of olive so you can increase the heat enough to generate some char. we have made this three times in a's quick and delicious.
