I've adapted this recipe from a number that I have used in the past. You can deviate from this and it is still delicious! Normally, I serve this with a jerk marinated chicken or pork, but it also goes well with grilled fish, steak and many other treats. If you serve it with something that isn't spicy, try adding some of the spices I list as optional. BTW. Red beans are the #1 highest anti-oxidant food per serving according to the USDA, so this is both delicious and very healthy too!
