Rice and Beans

Rice and Beans is a popular staple food for many Latin American and Caribbean .One day Eliot brought home a set of rice and bean home from Harlem,NYC.He told me how much he paid for the bean and rice and I was terrified coz it's quite expensive.So I told him I can cook the same food at home provided I can get hold of the authentic recipe.Eliot said he will get a recipe and ingredients from his Puetro Rico's co-worker.So the next day he told me the co-worker recipe which is quite simple and easy.Honestly cooking a simple meal like Bean and Rice at home is really cost effective and simple,not to said it's nutritious too.






Ingredients:
2 can of small red bean,removed liquid
5-6 cloves garlic,peeled and chopped
1/2 cup Sofrito
1 lb pork,diced small

1 tbsp chicken bullion powder
2 tbsp oil
1 cup water

On Tuesday, I made black and chilie beans in a crockpot but added ground beef with lots of jalepenos. This is the only dish I can eat everyday serve with rice, of course! :)
