    I don’t think it’s Puerto Rican but my favorite “bean” dish is All Recipies “Brown Rice and Black Bean Casserole”

    It’s not really a recipe, but when I go to a Mexican restaurant, I have to mix my rice with my refried beans. It is yummy!

    This is new to me. We eat a lot of tacos but I am afraid that the beans are only the side dish when we eat out, we don’t tend to make them at home so perhaps this recipe will encourage us to change that! Thanks so much for it and the giveaway!

    Love my mom’s beans! I try to make them but they never seem to come out as good as hers. And Calderos last forever! My mom still has one from when my almost 50 year old brother was a baby!

    Thank you sooooo much for the worudnfel recetas . My son loves dominican food and I use to cook it all the time for him but since my move from NYC to MD, we have been eating more american foods (whats available to our area). Now when he asks me to make him un locrio or un Morito de gandules I just get a little help from your website.Thanks again!!!
