Our authentic recipe Cuban black beans & rice. It’s the taste that made us famous! Our Old Havana ancestors perfected a slow-cook method for savory Cuban Black Beans and Rice, frijoles negros in Spanish. And we’re bringing this legendary Old Havana classic to a new generation of food lovers.
The secret to the flavor begins with premium, slow-cooked black beans. We stir in a delicate blend of sweet vidalia and yellow onions, sautéed in extra-virgin olive oil, freshly crushed garlic and a savory mix of authentic Cuban spices. Simmered to perfection, we add sweet red pimentos, apple cider vinegar, a touch of vermouth, raw cane sugar and a pinch of sea salt. We think they are the best frijoles negros on either side of the Florida Straits!
And our Sofrito is the base for dozens delicious Latin American classics and New World dishes. Make classics such as Arroz con Pollo (Chicken with Yellow Rice) and Picadillo (Cuban Sloppy Joes) or popular favorites like Creamy Cuban-Inspired Polenta, Shredded Chicken, tender Braised Beef Short Ribs, light yet flavorful Mediterranean Seafood Pasta or a quick and easy Kung Pao. It’s astonishingly easy with our versatile sautéed seasoning (Sofrito.)
We’ll send you everything you need to prepare this delicious Cuban side dish – 1 jar of sofrito authentic cooking sauce, 2 cans of beans and a small bag of Old Havana rice. It’s ready in minutes! Simply combine the 16 ounce jar of sofrito with two 15 ounce cans of original Old Havana Foods Black Beans (don’t drain the beans!) Heat and serve over a bed of Old Havana Foods rice. Makes 6 side dish servings.
Rich in protein and a good source of vitamins, minerals and anti-oxidants, vegetarians (and meat lovers as well!) love this savory Old Havana classic. ¡Buen provecho!
