Like most good dinners it starts with
1 onion, chopped
2 cloves crushed garlic sauteing in
acouple Tbs. of olive oil.
cook a few minutes, add
1 chopped green bell pepper
1 Tbs. Oregano
cook till veggies are tender on med. heat
two 15 oz. cans black beans
two Tbs. white vinegar
1/2 cup water
2 pkts. Sazón Goya without Annatto. (This seasoning makes all the difference, find it with the Goya/mexican food products. Annatto is just a reddish coloring, will make the beans more red if you do use it.)
Let this simmer on low about half an hour get the flavors to come out.
In the mean time cook a pot of long grain rice. Spoon the beans over the rice, the rice will soak up all the sauce and taste sooo good.
*Even though this recipe seems heavy on the onions/ garlic/ bell pepper, it turns out pretty mild. Just rich flavor. My picky 4 year old eats it by the bowl full!
So there you have it.
Healthy for you.
Cheap to make.
so a lot of people have been asking where to get this Goya seasoning. I found it at Wal-mart, it comes in a little flat, cardboard box in the Mexican food area, where the spices/ seasonings are. There are about 8 little foil packet inside. Turns out McCormick also does a version called Sazon, in a red box.
