  • 1 finely chopped onion
  • 1 chopped hot green pepper
  • 1/4 cup salted pork or bacon cut into small cubes
  • 1 tablesp. of butter
  • 2 chopped cloves of garlic
  • 2 tablesp. of vegetable oil
  • salt and pepper to taste


  • 1 Cook the beans [after having soaked them for 8 or 10 hours] in 4 cups of water for 2 hours or until tender in a medium pot.
  • 2 Drain the beans but keep the water which will be used to cook the rice.
  • 3 Fry the salt pork or bacon until crisp (use oil if needed). Add the onion, garlic, and green pepper.
  • 4 Add the beans along with salt and pepper to taste. Add the water used to cook the beans and bring to a boil
