  • Wash beans well; place in large saucepot. Add enough water to cover beans by 2 inches. Let soak overnight.
  • Drain beans; return to saucepot. Add enough water to cover beans by 2 inches. Bring to boil over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to medium-low; simmer 1 hour.
  • Combine bacon, sofrito and plantains in medium skillet; cook on medium heat 5 min., stirring occasionally. Add to beans in saucepot; simmer an additional 30 min., adding more water if needed. (Beans should be soupy when served.)

Make it Easy

Substitute 2 cans (15 oz. each) red kidney beans, drained and rinsed, for the cooked dry beans. Cook bacon, sofrito and plantains in large saucepan as directed. Add beans; mix well. Simmer 30 min. or until heated through, stirring occasionally.


Substitute 3 slices chopped OSCAR MAYER Ham for the bacon. Prepare as directed, adding the ham to the beans along with the sofrito and plantains after the 1-hour cook time. (No need to cook the ham, sofrito and plantains before adding to the beans.)
