Habichuelas rojas guisadas

I have been trying more Dominican recipes lately (rice and beans, and rice and beans!), and I really like this one. Don't bother measuring any of the ingredients, it is fairly forgiving. Just toss in a little this and that and don't fret if you are missing something (except maybe the beans). Instead of white rice, I used Costco's gaba rice. I'm sure any kind would be good. I also got lazy mashing and pulled out the immersion blender. And I used canned beans. Like I said, it is really forgiving. Both of my kids really liked it. I called it a "sauce" for the rice and never mentioned the blended beans.
