      There's almost always a serving suggestion at the end of each recipe. Just check the corresponding category or recipe and choose something you like.

      Good luck!

    in this recipe, you say to have 5 tblspns of oil but to only add 2.5 tblspns of oil at the beginning to make el sofrito. When do you pour the other 2.5 bec i didnt see where that goes?

    Rice and beans or (red beans & rice as Creoles call it) can be find throughout the Americas from African descendants everywhere. I love this recipe you have posted. I think every country has a tasteful spin on this classic dish.

      Yes, each country has its own version, and I have to say I haven’t met one I didn’t like yet.

    I usually don’t comment on recipes, but I just made this and it was delicious. I’ve made/had rice and beans dishes before which have come out tasty but goopy and soupy. This came out as beautiful tasty individual tender grains of rice. Great recipe!

      Nothing worse than goopy rice and beans. Thanks for letting me know about your experience. What will you try next?

      No, you would have to adapt it yourself.

      I’ve made it dividing each ingredient by 2 and it worked just as well:
      2 cups rice
      1 cup beans (~1/2 can)
      3 cups water
      2.5 T oil
      1 T tomato paste
      2 T cubanelle peppers
      1 pinch oregano
      1/4 minced garlic
      1 T capers
      1 T sliced olives
      2 T chopped celery
      1/2 t cilantro
      1/4 t dry thyme
      1/2 cube of bouillon (I put in one whole bouillon cube and omitted the salt)
      1/2 t salt

    When I was in the Dominican Republic my host family made me La Bandera Dominicana with a shredded chicken side dish that I mixed with the rice. The chicken was fabulous and tasted like it was cooked in salsa and some herbs. Do you know of any chicken recipe like this?

    I would like to use this recipe for a school project, but if I can’t find cubanelle peppers what should I substitute it for? And is the rice instant, or actual rice? If actual can I use wheat rice? Thanks for sharing your recipes I can’t wait to try them.

      You can use bell peppers. And you need regular long-grain rice.

    Pero que receta mas rica! Tengo que hacerla, y mas de las que a puesto en su blog; muchas gracias por compartir. Ayer hice Moros Y Cristianos al estilo de La Republica, y me salieron per exquisitos- alguin me dio una receta para el sofrito Dominicano, que use. Pero, ahora quiero probar la suya con frijoles rojos. Trabajo con una senorita Dominicana, y me dijo que se hace en La Republica Moros y Cristianos con frijoles negros tambien. No se, nunca he viajado a ese pais. En fin, si desea ver mi elaboracion del plato, lo puede ver en mi canal de YT, Rivet Gardener, con el enlace asi: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f3yd7bc34wA&feature=c4-overview&list=UULxnWmBi4Sah0mmJlm6pnZA

      Not much you can do about that, if is already finished. Unless it’s soaked in oil it will still be edible.
