Caribbean White Beans

Caribbean White Beans
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 onion, chopped
  • 1/2 green bell pepper, chopped
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 (15.5 ounce) can small white beans
  • 1 (6.5 ounce) can tomato sauce
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 1 sprig cilantro, coarsely chopped
  • 1/4 cup calabaza (pumpkin-like squash), peeled and medium diced
  • 1 (.18 ounce) packet sazon with coriander and achiote
  • 1 cube chicken with tomato flavored bouillon
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 pinch black pepper
  • 1 pinch ground cumin


  1. Heat olive oil in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Stir in the onion and green pepper; cook until the onion begins to turn brown, about 5 minutes. Pour in the water, white beans, tomato sauce, garlic, cilantro, and calabaza. Season with the sazon packet, bouillon cube, salt, pepper, and cumin; stir well to combine.
  2. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to a simmer, cover, and cook until the calabaza has softened, about 20 minutes. Remove the cover, and continue cooking until the sauce has thickened, about 10 more minutes.
