cuban-style black beans & rice (congri)

Jump To Recipe
Congri is traditionally made with red beans in some Latin American countries and black beans in Cuba. The difference between congri and your basic black beans and rice dish is that everything here is cooked together. When the beans are served on top of or next to white rice the dish is known as Moros y Cristianos, in reference to the Medieval clashes between Islamic Moors and Christian Spaniards.  As you'll see when making this recipe, the result is what looks like a bowl of black rice with black beans.

Do you drain the juice from the beans. I’m assuming you don’t, other wise you would have said to do so.
