This Week's Recipe - Congri: Black Beans and Rice

-1/2 bag Goya black beans (1lb)
-5 cups Goya Canilla parboiled rice
-1/2 white onion
-1/2 green bell pepper
-5 garlic cloves
-1 cup Goya olive oil
-2 bay leaves

-1 tsp cumin
-1 tbs salt
-4 bacon strips

1- Soak a bag of black beans in water overnight.
2- Sauté the sofrito (onion, bell pepper, garlic, bay leaves, cumin) with a tsp of olive oil. Add cut up bacon and cook for about 5 minutes.
3- Add 6 cups of water and add beans that have soaked overnight and allow to boil for about 10 minutes. Once the water has boiled for about 10 minutes, add 5 cups of rice and cook at medium heat for about 10 minutes.
4- Once you have cooked for 10 minutes continue cooking at low heat, almost a simmer until rice is done (approximately 30 minutes). If you see the rice drying out, you had had a little bit of water so that it stays moist.
