This is a Haitian-inspired way of cooking rice and beans. Kidney beans are cooked together with a herb and spice mix with rice. Serve with a side of freshly sliced avocados.
Can be purchased online.
Used a 15 oz can of drained & rinsed kidney beans and reduced the amount of water to 1 1/2 cups and it was perfect! Used an African adobo spice mix which contains a bit more heat. Served with a roasted beer can jerk chicken. - 05 Mar 2006 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This is so good! I don't usually like Red Beans & Rice but I really like this. My local Walmart didn't have the scotch bonnet, he said to substitute a habanero, but I settled for a jalapeno, sliced & seeded and thrown in the pot. It is the perfect heat for us. I did soak my beans first (habit). This recipe was nice because I actually cooked the beans yesterday, put in fridge & finished tonight. Husband thought it was too "clovey" so I will use less next time. - 27 Feb 2007 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
this taste just like my mother's recipe! i never got it from her since she cooks from memory like most great mother chefs do!! the scotch bonnet pepper gave it the zip i needed and this recipe is adaptable to any beans. when i make it with black beans i use celery instead of shallots and it comes out great. thank you for this recipe. it will be a main staple in my home - 25 Jan 2003 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
