Expert Tips

Don't use beans that are too soft so they don't fall apart.

Directions

  • 1 In a frying pan, heat oil on medium-high heat. Add onions and peppers and sauté for a few minutes. Do not let them turn golden.
  • 2 Add beans and sauté for a few minutes. Add the bean broth and, when it starts to boil, add rice and stir in to combine. Continue to cook until it has the desired texture. It can be juicy or more dried up.
  • 3 Peel plantains, slice them in rounds and fry them in vegetable oil until golden. Place on a few paper towels to remove excess oil.
  • 4 Beat the eggs, season with salt and scramble them with the red bell pepper.
  • 5 Toast bread or tortillas.
  • 6 Serve the casamiento with the scrambled eggs, fried plantains, queso fresco, cream and bread, or tortillas.
