EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

Beans and rice is a popular combination in Latin American, South American and Caribbean cuisines. Sometimes beans and rice is a mild accompaniment to a spicy dish, but this recipe is a spicy one.

Red beans or kidney beans can be used in place of the black beans in this recipe.

If you are wary of spicy food, start by cooking only 1/2 teaspoon of the red pepper flakes with the rest of the seasonings. Continue with the recipe as directed. After adding the beans, simmer for 5 minutes and taste. Season to taste with the remaining 1/2 teaspoon of red pepper flakes as desired.
