      These beans were very good and tasted like they had been made from scratch. I don't know what an Italian frying pepper is, so I used a roasted red sweet pepper instead. I loved the method of flavoring the beans with the cilantro tied in a bundle; it really added to the flavor. I served these beans as a side dish with homemade carnitas.

      Excellent recipe. My husband is Dominican and his grandmother makes stewed beans all the time. Everyone raves over her beans, and I've been looking for a similar recipe. Only thing I did differently was to use the Goya small red kidney beans. I have a very large extended family, and I have never known any of them to cook with pinto beans.

      These beans are exactly like the ones my mother cooks for me when I come over and visit... They turned out absolutely delicious, even over a bed of brown rice instead of white!
