• 1 15 oz can Black beans
  • 1 1/2 tablespoon Goya Recaito (or use recipe below)
  • 1 bay leaf


Pour can into pot and add recaito and bay leaf. Bring to boil and immediately turn heat down to simmer up to an hour on very low heat.

This is very tasty with the recaito, but it does contain MSG, so you can also make your own.

Recaito recipe:

1/2 bell pepper
1/2 yellow onion
2 cloves garlic
1 aji chili (optional sweet chili)
1 Tbsp. cilantro
1/2 tsp salt

Chop all ingredients and process in blender or food processor until almost mush. This recipe can be doubled or tripled and kept in the freezer. It can be added to many dishes for flavor.
