"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."

  1. Heat olive oil in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Stir in the onion and green pepper; cook until the onion begins to turn brown, about 5 minutes. Pour in the water, white beans, tomato sauce, garlic, cilantro, and calabaza. Season with the sazon packet, bouillon cube, salt, pepper, and cumin; stir well to combine.
  2. 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.

Delicious and so simple to make!!! my whole family loved it!

One of the best chilies ever. It had just the right amount of spices (and I do like spice!). Perfect for the fall weather. Serve with cornbread and pumpkin butter, or some coconut shrimp!

We wanted to serve this as a main dish although, judging by the serving size, this would only make a small side dish. We used a whole onion, a whole green pepper, and half of an acorn squash and...

I found these a little too sweet with the squash. It was a lot of work for a dish that tasted like sweet squash and little else.
