    I don't know what the other reviews said, but I thought this dish was delicious. I will probably have to mince the olives and capers to get my husband to eat it, but they added a nice flavor. Had to have seconds!

    Esta receta está bien, solo que yo no le añado tantas o ninguna aceitunas ni alcaparras. Sí le agrego "celery" le da un sabor exquisito y con ello añades fibra (lo cual es muy bueno para la salud). Además le agrego sazón con cilantro para darle mejor color y le agrego tambien un sobrecito de Cochinito (como el sazón pero con sabor a jamón - cuando no tengo jamón solo uso 2 sobrecitos de estos, pruébalo). Además, si dejas hervir lo suficiente las habichuelas, estas espesarán sin tener que majar la calabaza ni las habichuelas. Un truco que hago para que espesen mas rapido es agregar la calabaza desde que echo el sofrito, así se va ablandando y espesa más rapido las habichuelas. REC
