I can't remember where I got this recipe. The Cuban surgeon at the hospital where I worked said it was "almost as good" as his mother's!

    Good stuff! I chopped up a jalapeno and threw it in with the peppers, onions, and garlic when sauteing and then substituted a couple left over, thin pork chops for the bacon and it was delicious!

    This is really good. I added some lime juice and cilantro. One question, though: the nutrition fats state that there are almost 20 grams of fat per serving. I made a half recipe with one tablespoon of olive oil and one slice of well-drained bacon ). To me this is about 20 grams of fat for the whole dish, since everything else is rice, beans, and vegetables. My dish is four servings. Is this nutrition info accurate?

    This was delicious! My husband likes meat in his beans so I rendered one pound of smoked sausage, drained on paper towels, then sauteed veggies in one T of drippings. Used chicken stock instead of water and cooked eight hours on high in the crock pot. I added Cajun seasoning and some Italian seasoning as it just added some depth of flavor. Look forward to making this often. Thank you!
