We’re in the full swing of the holidays! Thanksgiving dinner is under our belt and Noche Buena and Christmas morning is in our sights. The tree is up, the lights are twinkling, the garland is strewn, and we’re headed back into the kitchen to cook up dish after dish of delicious classics. To keep us inspired, we’re putting a TLK twist on the classic song 12 Days of Christmas. You know the one with 12 drummers drumming, 11 pipers piping...all the way down to the partridge in the pear tree!
We’ve already covered 12 Tasty Tacos, shared our 11 Favorite Flans, made 10 Types of Tamales, toasted with 9 Christmas Cocktails, dug into 8 Enchiladas, indulged with 7 Pasteles Dulces, cooked up 6 Pans of Paella, snacked on 5 Cro-Que-Tas, worked on 4 Perfect Pernils, and whipped up 3 Bacalaos. Today we're working on another classic: 2 Rice and Beans! Make some cocktails, invite over friends, and get ready to cook (and sing!) along!
Rice and beans make everything better. Fact. And no holiday table is complete without Grandma Anna's Puerto Rican Rice and Beans. Garlic, peppers, and onions make this side hearty and healthy. For bonus points and extra compliments, cook the black beans with red pepper flakes and enjoy.
