  • About

The beans most often associated with Cuban cooking are frijoles negros, but Cubans eat many kinds of beans and legumes. Red beans are especially popular in the eastern provinces, where they are used to make congrí (red beans and rice), and hearty soups like this one. Serve with crusty Pan Cubano (Cuban Bread).
