Red beans as made in my hometown of Barranquilla are very good. They are plump, soft on the inside, with a dark red sauce that you could eat alone! The vegetables are processed or blended to a smooth consistency so they blend into the recipe to create a sauce that is silky and very flavorful. Serve them with rice and sweet plantains*; some even add ground beef. Any kind of red beans will do.
