Country: Belize

Belizean Rice & Beans, 3/26/2005
Reviewer: Kevie from Orlando, Florida (1080)
My folks came from Belize - I've taken trips there all of my life, and even lived there for 3 years. This is the authentic recipe - tastes just like it does when you buy it at the local restaurants. The only change I made to this recipe was to add salt pork and then omit the salt entirely - something they do in Belize.

This is very good served as the main dish topped with cillantro and chopped green onions, or as a side dish. The coconut milk adds a nice but subtle flavor.
