From: Boston

Nice and hearty addition to white rice.


  • 1 (15 ounce) can kidney beans (or your preference)
  • 4 ounces tomato sauce
  • 1 tablespoon sofrito sauce (see my recipe for it, or buy Goya store bought)
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1 (1/4 ounce) envelope sazon goya, powder
  • 1 cup water
  • 6-10 pitted green olives (optional)

Add olive oil and add sofrito heat through for 1 minute.

Add olives, beans, Sazon packet, tomato sauce and cook for 1 minute.

Add water.

Cook for 20-25 minutes at medium heat, you want bean stew to thicken slightly.

Serve with yellow or white rice.
