Habichuelas [Beans]

I know I keep saying ‘this is my favorite recipe’, but I’m serious this time, this one is my favorite. It’s so simple to make, you can freeze a big batch and just put it in the pot and boom, fresh beans.

The best way to eat this is over a plate of grains. To make it healthier, I usually go for brown rice or quinoa.

A couple tips from the chef herself;
– Crush the beans, just lightly smash to the side of the pot. The beans are meant to be a think consistency.
– If you are using a can of beans, drain and rinse thoroughly.
– I prefer to use a non-stick pan, less headache.
