"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."

"My fiance is Puerto Rican, and so our daughter is obviously half Puerto Rican. I find myself striving to make Puerto Rican dishes to perfection, I even made Coquito last Christmas and I will be making it again this year! (My fiance isn't even home to try all this stuff that I'm making for him!) But, I'd rather practice while he's locked up so that when he comes home he'll be surprised. Anyway... this recipe was BY FAR the best recipe I've tried yet! The inlaws never gave me recipes because they all have it in their memories! So, this recipe will be used in our house over and over now because it's amazing! I changed a little though, like 2 potatoes, I didn't have Sofrito but I had Recaito and I added an onion. It was delicious!!! Thank you!!"
"Everyone loved this dish tonight! So easy and flavorful-probably the best beans I've made! Only change I made was to simmer w/o the lid to make a thick sauce. I love the olives-no need for added salt. Thank you, Michelle, for a DELICIOUS recipe! Made for the Think Pink Tag Game In Honor of Breast Cancer Awareness, October 2008."
"I made this tonite for dinner and enjoyed it. I'm familiar with Puerto Rican dishes because my son's father is PR himself:).. I missed the sprinkle of adobo and garlic powder even though I know you do use minced garlic. Other than that, a good recipe! But I would omit the water next time, just personal preference. This will be made again though. Thanks!!"
"Great recipe! I kept going off the goya can on how to make rice and beans. I wanted something more like how my family would do it and found this. Soooo good! Very easy to make as well. Also great if you a college student."
"Awesome recipe. Quick and Tasty. If you don't have the ham, I use the Goya " Sabor a Jamon De Cocinar." same awesome taste of the ham, only in a powder. Can use 1 packet for 2, even three cans of beans. And if you want it quick, use can potatoes. Also good and quick. M."
"Family just returned from San Juan, and loved the cusine! My eldest son loved the PR rice and beans. He thought these were exactly right! I used kidney beans, but prefer the pink beans if I can only find them!"
"It doesn't get any better than this. Thanks or sharing. Now I'm gonna search to see if you have more recipes posted. Yum, yum. These are probably the best beans I've had. You even outdid my puerto rican abuelita. :)"
"Absolutely fabulous! My husband had this when he was stationed in Puerto Rico so I surprised him with this recipe. He said it was BETTER then what he had. He absolutely loved it. Thanks for posting this!"
"great recipe. very flavorful. we don't eat pork products, so omitted the ham. thanks for the recipe"
"Delicious!! I've made these twice already, thanks so much for the recipe! I know I'll be making them with every Spanish-themed food night in the future :)."
"Oh my.....this is wonderful!!!! I followed your instructions exactly (even serving the avocado slices with it). Hubby insists that I make this again. This is such a easy meal to prepare yet a full flavored dish that makes you feel good all over. Thanks for sharing, Michelle Bass. "
