Congri “Cuban Rice Dish” - Teresa “Sotolongo” Aspiotis

Congri “Cuban Rice Dish”
  • 1 can of Goya Black Beans
  • 1 medium Onion chopped
  • 1 green bell pepper chopped
  • 6-8 strips of bacon cut in small pieces
  • 3-4 garlic cloves chopped
  • Salt & Pepper according to your liking
  • 2 cups of long grain rice
  • 3 cups of water
  • 2 Bay leaves

In a sauce pan add 4-5 tablespoons of Olive Oil and add the onions, peppers, bacon & garlic, sauté until golden
Now add to a Pot 3 Cups of water, salt according to liking, bay leaves, 2 tbsp. olive oil & 1 can of black beans add all liquid in can as well do not drain. Bring to a boil and add the rice, lower the heat and slowly boil for about 5-7 minutes then my secret to the perfect rice is before the rice is done I close the stove burner and cover the pot with kitchen cloth and put top cover on pot and let it stay for another 15 minutes and you got a perfect rice without worrying that it will stick or burn.
Bon Appetite & More to come Teresa “Sotolongo” Aspiotis
