If it was bland, then the cook didn't use enough cloves or cinnamon :) But yeah, I'll eat a little at Easter time maybe, but not going to go crazy without it either

I have never been known to turn it down when it's offered to me. I don't think I've ever had a bad batch.

Am I really the only person here who actually enjoys habichuelas con dulce?????

I suspect some of you cringe at the thought of it, without actually having a homemade dish
I like it only when it’s hot. When that cools down it starts to ferment instantly and the atomic bomb combo of partially fermented beans and lactic acid wreaks havoc on the human digestive complex! Other than that 3 outta 5 maddones!

I love me some habichuelas con dulce.

Clara's research on all things comida dominincana should be required reading for all prospective retirees wanting to move to the D.R.
I'm cooking her red bean stew recipe, as I'm guessing it's closest to what I remember eating down there.
It seems others have tried using variations on seasonings, adding to the base recipe; then posting them online.

Am hoping someone here familiar with red bean stew(La Bandera)recipe can assist me.
Can I get away with using only savon seasoning, as opposed to purchasing coriander, annatto, and cilantro individually?.
While savon has the 3 ingredients, the amounts are of course; premixed.
Thanks in advance for any help on this project, as I'm really trying for authenticity
:)
Yes you can use sazon. Also use fresh garlic, chopped onion and pepper, and a few sprigs of fresh cilantro. And don't forget Auyama(pumpkin), peeled and chopped for authentic flavor.

Several chili recipes call for a tablespoon or two of peanut butter. As this red bean recipe isn't spicy, maybe go with one and see what you think.

Learned something new, never heard of that. I’ve also never made chili, haha. I’ve probably made about 1000 pounds of beans over the last 48 years though.

In the Indonesian cuisine it is also very common to use peanut sauce, peanut butter is just a shortcut.
Gado Gado. Delicious.
