    I altered from the directions by using canned beans to speed up the process. When it comes to food, I get impatient. I really loved this. More posted in IMI Peetabears Cuban Black Beans Bacon And Rice# Thanks for sharing a great recipe

    This sounds wonderful! I usually just put bacon in raw with the beans I cook...frying first and using the bacon drippings sounds sooooooooo much better. Thanks, Peeta! 5up

    Spending almost 25 years in Miami, we have come to love Cuban cuisine. This is a wonderful side dish, (sometimes main dish).
