How To Prepare Costa Rican Inspired Beans

Black Beans with Costa Rican Flavors

I am an expert at whipping up the fare of beans and rice with chicken. Let me share with you some of my recipes.

Beans With Costa Rica Flavor

Get about 850-gram bag of either black or red dry beans. About 5 or 6 whole garlic cloves, make sure to have the peeled. Two bay leaves, Although, you can make it without bay leaves, but I am suggesting it because it causes the best flavor. Get one small yellow diced onion.

Now wash the beans carefully and look if there are any broken beans, so remove them if you find. To be honest with you, I want to tell you that I am lazy in removing the broken beans. And also, I don’t like to soak them all the night, and instead, I prefer to put them on my stove for 18 hours. Make sure to have the washed beans and put them in a big and large pot. I don’t own a pressure cooker or a slow cooker, so I use instead, a 12-quart stock pot.

Now, add some things such as peeled garlic cloves, bay leaves, and diced onion. Finally, you will need to add the water. Make sure to add enough water as much as it covers the beans. After that, add some more water. I personally, like to add the water 4-5 times during the cooking process as the water will boil out. Bringing everything to a boil will be needed and you will need to stir occasionally. Make sure to reduce the heat to low and then cover. I actually let it boiling on a low boil and keep it for more than 6 hours or until I see the beans are tender. When you see the beans are softer and not quite ready, add the salt. A teaspoon or a little of salt is enough for this time. But it is your choice to add the salt as much as you wish, I personally don’t to use more salt that’s why I suggested one teaspoon or a little more.

  • Rice
  • One teaspoon oil
  • One cup of grain rice, it’s recommended that you should use white long grain rice.
  • Two cups of water.
  • Some salt to get the fun taste.

Begin by heating a little sauce pan using a little oil. You can use vegetable oil if the olive oil is expensive in your area. Maybe the vegetable oil is not the best for some people, so using the olive oil would be better. Once the oils start throwing sizzle sound, add the rice and begin to stir quickly so it will stop them to burn. Coat your rice in the oil and leave it to get a little warm and toasty and then quickly add the salt to taste and some water. Now it’s time to boil the water, make sure to give it a good stir and after that reduce the heat to medium-low and then cover it for more than 20 minutes or until the water is disappeared. This procedure will ensure that the rice is not too soft but not crunchy.
