"This recipe for rice and beans is so delicious! I have adapted it from the traditional Haitian style of making rice and beans. The scent and taste of the cloves make the dish! Serve with avocado on the side and you'll want it every night of the week!"

This dish is way too hot! I've never used a scotch bonnet chile pepper before so didn't know what to expect. Don't know if we'll be able to eat it b/c of the spices...it smells good though!

I made this with canned kidney beans, and I couldn't find Scotch bonnet peppers so I used two large jalapenos instead. I ended up adding a lot more Adobo seasoning - was glad I hadn't already ad...
