A wonderful combination of Caribbean ingredients turn into a very flavorful meal! Pour the beans over white rice or have as a soup. Great with breaded thin steaks. I get requests for this meal from all my family, friends, and coworkers.

  • Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to a simmer, cover, and cook until the calabaza has softened, about 20 minutes. Remove the cover, and continue cooking until the sauce has thickened, about 10 more minutes.
