Caribbean Red Beans and Brown Rice
I have beans or legumes for at least one meal a day to keep cholesterol in check. These beans are packed with flavor; the Caribbean flavor comes from the allspice and ground cloves. I found that 1 teaspoon of hot pepper sauce provides a 2 1/2 alarm heat rating, a little hotter than I usually eat (spicy but not fiery) but that didn't interfere with my enjoyment of this dish. I prefer to cook my beans in a pressure cooker so I can reduce salt and additives; you may use 3 15-1/2 oz. cans of pinto beans or kidney beans that have been rinsed and drained. The proper portion is 1 cup bean mixture over 1/2 cup cooked brown rice.
