    I make mine like I was taught by my grandmother with grated coconut (milk) and whole milk
    versus carnation milk for whole milk. I also add freshly grated nutmeg and allspice (malagueta)
    in addition to the cinnamon sticks and whole cloves.

    In the video above the sweet potatoes are white inside I thought they were the same colour as the outside. Maybe I'm thinking of yams.

    There are different varieties of sweet potatoes in the DR. Some are light purple in color (on the outside) and yes, white inside.

    Yes, you are thinking of yams or sweet potato which is orange on the inside/outside.

    I love habichuelas con dulce [and I dislike red beans]. One of Mr. AE's aunts made the absolute BEST, each year we'd visit her just to eat some. Her sister [my suegra] made it too, but the aunt must have had a secret ingredient

    I've made it, wasn't so great. Our maid does a great job of it, just makes too much, no matter what I say we end up with about a 6 quart pot full.

    Warning, do not ever eat it after it has been sitting out in the hot sun for a few hours. My mother in law tried to warn me as I drank down my second small cup of the delicious beans.
    Several hours later, I woke up in the middle of the night in panic. I was a guest in someone else's house, and for the first time in dozens of trips to the DR, the town was totally quiet, as well as the house. No dogs, motorcycles, chickens, music, NOTHING, totally quiet. To make matters worse, there was no water in the town. So there I was in the bathroom with a burned out light bulb, no water, a guest in someone else's house and the beans working their magic on my intestines. Long night. I felt like Jeff Daniels in the scene from Dumb and Dumber.

    Unless you drink a 5 gallon bowl like cccccccc did once getting diarrhea from a normal portion means you needed a good cleaning out. Beans are a great source of fiber.

    Oh yes and don't leave it out in the sun it contains milk

    Any version I have had did not have the sweet potato in it. I did not see it prepared so maybe it had them in it and was put in a blender.
    A little bit of this goes a long ways. A small cup full of it was good enough for me.
    I don't like it enough to try making it.
