Habichuelas Blancas

From 'Jaime in the Kitchen Food Blog,' EL BORICUA - monthly cultural publication for descendants of Puerto Ricans and Puerto Ricans ausentes.

Kids say the funniest things and mine were no different. Once long ago, when we lived up north and my children were still young, they were really surprised one day when I served white beans instead of the usual.  Papi, have you been watching cooking shows again,?they asked.

Read more of Jaime's blog in our September publication, by subscription only.

Yes, Riqueños are masters of habichuelas guisadas. These are as delicious as they look. What best to accompany these beans than white rice and a side of tostones? Yum!
