Step 1

Rinse and soak beans overnight in refrigerator.

Step 2

In a Dutch oven or heavy bottom pot heat oil over medium- high heat cook bacon until fat is rendered. Remove bacon and discard oil except about ½ tbsp.

Step 3

In the same pot add the soaked beans and enough water to cover the beans by 2 inches. Bring to a boil and simmer until beans are tender, about 1 hour.

Step 4

Add carrots, potato, garlic, plantain, sofrito, Sazón and cooked bacon; cook for ½ hour.

Step 5

Season with Adobo and if beans liquid is too thick add water ½ cup at a time. Serve with white rice.
