Easy, savory and fully plant-based Puerto Rican rice and beans.
Before moving to Miami, I wasn’t too familiar with latin food.
I used to think that developing these deep flavors was out of reach but turns out it’s all about having the right spices in your pantry!
Rice and beans are a staple in latin cuisine and also my favorite part of any dish.
Also, this recipe is accidentally vegan!
I’ve partnered with Loisa to create this recipe. A great Puerto Rican rice and beans recipe is all about the spices.
I highly recommend using the Loisa’s Sazón and Adobo seasonings as they are USDA certified organic, made with only real ingredients, for real color and great flavor (unlike some other brands who use artificial ingredients instead)!

Make The Sofrito
Add the olive oil to a large pot and heat to medium-high. Next, add the diced onion, chopped green bell pepper and the chopped tomatoes.
Stir and cook for a couple of minutes then lower the heat to low.
Start The Beans
In a second pot or skillet with high sides, add one 15-ounce can of pinto beans then fill up half of the can with filtered water and add it to the beans.
Allow the beans to simmer gently while you make the rice.
