This is a tasty treat I taught myself to make when I was snowed in and couldn't get to the grocery store. Tasty and easy to make.

I LOVE these beans! I've made them a few times and it is the quickest, easiest recipe, and it's great to take to work the next day. I also did not put any seasoning into the rice, and I cannot find Adobo anywhere so I found a recipe online to make your own: 1 TBS oregano, 2 TBS garlic powder, 2 TBS onion powder, and 1/5 TBS cumin.

Fast and easy but awful. Way too much adobo too salty. I had to add anothe can of beans for it to feed 4 people.
