Hola Amigos! I really wanted to make the first post of 2014 memorable! Perhaps an awesome and gooey dessert or a 5 star meal, but after getting and digging a foot of snow the first 2 days of the year and with temperatures today -5 without windchill, the only kind of food I can think of is good old fashion comfort food, nothing fancy, just good!!!!

This rice is very common in the Atlantic Coast of my country. Folks there eat it as part of their daily diet with saucy chicken or spicy escovitch fish! I had mine with a hamburger patty in a spicy onion and mushroom sauce, my 1-2-3  version of Salisbury steak!

Add extra beans with butter if you want! I know, not the leanest and healthier thing to eat but it's good I tell ya! On the plus side, it's a side dish rich in fiber!
Rice and Beans with Coconut Milk Recipe, rice never tasted better than this Southern Classic dish with a Caribbean hint! #comfortfood #southernfood #caribbeanfood #rice #beans #coconut

You can taste the sweetness of the coconut on every bite but by no means the rice is sweet, just a hint!
As a side, serve it with something definitely sweet, yellow plantains, mine I soaked in coke, that's why they are a bit on the dark side.

Now that we all had a taste of the sunny Caribbean, let's go out and do some more shoveling! (hopefully not)! I hope you guys are having a wonderful first week of the year! Remember that everything could be memorable and taste even better with a Pinch of Love!

  1. I bet I'd like the rice like that, especially if it's just a hint with each bite. We just had a house full of people for 8 days, and boy did I get to do my fair share of cooking and then some!! I'm ready to r-e-l-a-x!

  2. Yummy! I'm definitely going to have to try this recipe... with some chuleta on the side! ;)

  3. G'day Lizbeth!
    Nothing like the warmth of Caribbean food! YUM!
