Having been given our family traditional PR recipes, I always switch this up a bit...First after oil in skillet, brown tiny bits of ham or Canadian bacon or pork til just cracklin'....Sprinkle wih some Adobo seasoning...Then add bits of diced onion, tiny bits of potatoes, and then turn down heat some and add 1 or 2 ( I add 2 ) pkts Sazon....combine..then add a good 1 or 2 tbls Sofrito. Combine. Add 1 or 2 cans Goya tomate sauce. Finally add the pink beans. Combine. Cover and let all flavours marry. Simmer on low...Uncover when want to serve and cook liquid down ( only if too much ) but leave enough for it to have a creamy and not dry consistency. Now THESE are true PR beans! :)

Again this was a great recipe. I used canned and drained kidney beans, omitted the salt, used unsalted tomato sauce and added Adobo to taste. It was awsome. I've used the canned and drained pinto beans before and it was without-a-doubt-delicious! The longer it cooks the more the flavors infuse into the beans, just make sure it doesn't burn. If you want thicker broth, try using the water the beans come in, instead draining it. Or use 1/2 water, 1/2 the bean water. MMMM!

this recipe is good but I did make a few small changes. I quickly diced a small potato and plantain - you can get this at a Spanish food store and even some regular grocery stores - and sauteed them for a few minutes and added that to the rest of the mixture. The starch helped thicken the bean sauce up. I also spiced it up with some fresh cilantro and Adobo. Added juice from can of beans as suggested and let it simmer for about half an hour. mmmm. came out delicious.
