Red Bean Stew
In a large skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Add red onion and garlic; cook about 5 minutes or until onion is tender. Carefully add the water, tomato paste, the snipped cilantro, the oregano, and adobo seasoning. Stir in beans. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Cook and stir over medium heat for 5 to 10 minutes or until soup is slightly thickened, mashing beans slightly while stirring.Advertisement
Serve stew with rice. If desired, garnish with cilantro sprigs. Makes 4 (1/2 cup stew and 1/2 cup cooked rice) servings.
