“My good friend Connie (she says this is classic Cuban Frijoles Negro soup) made this great dish for her family. I likes it thicker so I added the 3rd can of blended beans and occasionally the heavy cream to make it thicker still. We serve it over rice without the garnish, but if we have company, I love to make it look pretty�Enjoy!!”
