Caribbean Beans & Rice
Day 3 of TripleSBites – a saucy, sexy, spicy collection of recipes from 20 incredible bloggers! So far I’ve featured one of my Valentine’s favorite vegetables, a delicious pink treat, and today I’m featuring a spicy dish that is sure to heat things up. I’ve mentioned before how when I first met my husband he wasn’t a fan of the spicy, and how over the years (5 this spring!) he has acquired a taste for the hot, hot, HOT! So when the I was Pirate Jonny’s Caribbean style hot sauce I knew I HAD to use it to make something special for my better half. This dish features a bunch of vegetables along with two types of beans some brown rice and for those that want it: cheese! Basically all the things my husband loves, minus Old Bay.
1 tbsp olive oil
2 cloves garlic
1 red onion, diced
1 green pepper, diced
1 cup corn
1 cup brown rice
1 1/2 cups vegetable stock
1 can rotel tomatoes, original
1 tbsp Syrena's Seduction Hot Sauce
1 cup black beans, presoaked
1 cup pinto beans, presoaked
Grated Cheese, Sour Cream, and/or Avocado for topping
- Heat the olive oil in a large pot over medium heat. Add the garlic, onion, and green pepper and cook for 10 minutes. Stir in the corn and cook for an additional 5 minutes.
- Add the rice, and toss well in the oil and vegetables for a minute before adding the stock, hot sauce and rotel. Bring to a boil, then cover, and bring to a simmer. Cook for 25 minutes, then stir in the beans and fluff the rice and allow to sit for 5 minutes.
- Serve and top with cheese, sour cream, and/or avocado and Enjoy!
Not going to lie – this sauce packs a bit of a punch! However it is more than just a hot sauce, there are other flavors going on which is key to me. Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy hot sauce but there has to be something else going on beyond the HOT portion – and this sauce has it. Next on my list is to check out their Guava Girl Hot Sauce, mostly because of the name, but it also sounds like another sauce that will more than just a “hot sauce”.
Note: While I did receive the Cherry Chipotle Not Ketchup for free as part of participating in TripleSBites, I was not required to use or mention the product outside of acknowledging receipt of the product. All opinions are totally my own.
