Moros y Cristianos (Black Beans and Rice)

Tops Exclusive

A Scrumptious Cuban Side Dish - introduce your family to the tantalizing flavors of Cuba with Moros y Cristianos (also called Arroz Moro), a very popular dish of black beans and rice. The name recalls Spanish history: Tender GOYA Black Beans symbolize Muslim Moors, and fluffy CANILLA Extra Long Grain Rice stands in for Christian Spain. Simmered together, Moros y Cristianos soak up vibrant flavor from an array of herbs and vegetables. Serve this authentic dish with your family's favorite roasted or grilled meats, or all by itself -- it's too scrumptious to pass up!
