Red Beans and Rice with Fried Eggs

Red Beans and Rice with Fried Egg

2 Tbsp olive oil
1 yellow onion, chopped
3 cloves garlic, minced
1/3 jar of Recaito
1/3 jar of Sofrito
1 can small tomato sauce
2 cans Goya light red kidney beans (not drained)
2 cans Goya dark red kidney beans (drained)
salt, pepper, Adobo, Badia's complete seasoning to taste
4 Eggs
3 C cooked rice ( 1 1/2 C uncooked rice- cook according to pkging)


Cook onion, garlic, and seasoning in olive oil until translucent in large skillet.

Add Recaito and Sofrito and cook for 2 minutes. Stir in tomato sauce (if it appears to thick you can fill your empty tomato sauce can with water ad add to skillet)

 Add your beans and cook on low simmer for 25-35 minutes or until your beans are soft. 

Taste and make sure everything is seasoned well. If it needs more seasoning, add some Adobo and pepper.

{Adobo is very salty, and I have made the mistake of adding salt and Adobo- I love salt.. but not that much!}

In another skillet, add your eggs and fry. 

Cook eggs so the yolk will ooze out when on the plate. This adds a lot of flavor to this delish dish. :)
