1/4 cup tomato sauce
can of kidney beans (undrained)
1 med. onion, chopped
1 med. green pepper, chopped
2 tsp of minced garlic (or more if you like, we LOVE garlic over here)
1 tb of Sofrito (optional)
1 packet of SazÃ³n culantro y achiote (made by Goya)
1/4 tsp of chipotle seasoning (optional)---we like a LOT of flavor
2 tsp of olive oil
1/4 cup water
Heat olive oil over medium heat in a wide skillet. Sautee onions, green pepper and garlic until onions are translucent (don't let garlic burn). Then add everything else and simmer until the desired consistency. I like mine thick, but hubby prefers it more runny. I also like to add fresh chopped cilantro (about 3 tablespoons). Super Yummy!
If you don't have SazÃ³n--you can use a mix of dried cilantro, paprika, saffron, garlic powder, ground cumin and salt. I know many people don't have saffron on hand, so you could just skip that.
