“A wonderful combination of Caribbean ingredients turn into a very flavorful meal! Pour the beans over white rice or have as a soup. Great with breaded thin steaks. I get requests for this meal from all my family, friends, and coworkers.”

  1. Heat olive oil in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Stir in the onion and green pepper; cook until the onion begins to turn brown, about 5 minutes. Pour in the water, white beans, tomato sauce, garlic, cilantro, and calabaza. Season with the sazon packet, bouillon cube, salt, pepper, and cumin; stir well to combine.
  2. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to a simmer, cover, and cook until the calabaza has softened, about 20 minutes. Remove the cover, and continue cooking until the sauce has thickened, about 10 more minutes.

So good! I used Jamaican Jerk seasoning and yellow summer squash. A few red pepper flakes for heat and some brown sugar for sweetness.
