Criollo red kidney beans

Level: Beginner
3/4 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup diced tomatoes (we used roasted canned tomatoes)
4 cloves of garlic
Cubed chicken stock to taste (we used 1/2 Sazon Goya package)
1 can red kidney beans
2 tbsp oil

1. In oil fry onion, garlic, tomatoes, and stock until onions are translucent.
2. Add can of beans un-drained and add half a can of water using the same can from the beans. Mix.
3. Let it boil for 5 minutes or until beans are cooked thoroughly. Taste for flavor.

** These beans are very simple and filling. We ate them with whole grain rice and fried green plantains. If using whole grain rice you don't have to add oil to the rice, this then becomes an even healthier option. :)
