Puerto Rican Red Beans and Rice

40 mins (prep 5, cooking 35)
12 ingredients

When we lived in Puerto Rico, this was a favorite meal. We're back in the States now, but when I make Red Beans and Rice it transports me back to La Isla Del Encanto! It can be eaten as a meal itself or with a simple salad.
