Habichuelas Rojas Guisadas/Dominican Republic (DR) beans

This is one of Mike's meals...it's healthy and tasty too!

- 2 cans light kidney beans
- 1/2 c. chopped celery
- 1/2 c. chopped onion
- 1 cube chicken stock
- 1/2 t. chopped parsley
- 1/2 t. thyme leaves
- 1 T. chopped cilantro
- 1 T. tomato sauce (I just use spaghetti sauce)
- 1 T. oil
- 1/2 t. minced garlic
- 1 pinch of oregano
- Salt and water

- Heat oil in pot and add oregano, onion, garlic, celery, parsley, cilantro and thyme.
- Stir and add 2 T. water. When the water has almost evaporated add the chicken stock and 2 more T. water, stir.
- Add the beans and then add enough water to cover them. Let them reach a boil and then mash the beans over heat.
- Continue to let boil at medium heat until it reaches a creamy consistency. Adjust salt to taste. Serve over rice.
