I made it last year for the first time but with coconut milk. It was good but a little too rich for me. No one else liked it so I guess I won't be making it again.

Interesting.  Btw, in our part of DR, they also make it with fava beans. Haba Con Dulce 
The first time I tasted it was in either San Cristóbal or Baní, and it was the fava bean version.

Never liked habichuelas con dulce. My favorite thing about cuaresma time is guandules and bacalao,YUM!

I once wrote a song about habichuelas con dulce; it was set to the music of Los Toros Band's "Llegó tu marido."

When I came back to the DR and was running a small hotel in Sosua, the wife of my dear friend Juan (remember Juan?) always made habichuelas con dulce for me every year at Semana Santa. The first year I couldn't even taste it, because it was during Passover, and if you're observing the food rules for that holiday, beans are out. The second year, there was no overlap, so I took a taste. The third year, I accepted the gift with great thanks and poured it into the sink. Not my cup o'tea. But then again, I am a Dominican-in-training who does not eat sancocho or drink rum. Maybe in time......

My wife doesn't like habichuelas con dulce at all, but she loves sweet corn. Me, I have had good tasting habichuelas con dulce, and I've had horrible stuff, so I avoid it but will take some just to be polite. Mondongo I will never eat.

the contents of salami are worse than mondongo. far worse.

Without a doubt, I have seen dogs refuse Dominican salami. I don't eat salami or ham either.
there is a documentary on youtube in which is depicted a chicken waste packing plant in the USA. all the unsaleable parts , including feathers, are ground up into a mush and sold to sausage makers. that gloop is one of the ingredients in Dominican salami.
