Caribbean Style Red Beans and Rice

Updated: May 20, 2021

As you can maybe tell, I love eating and learning about food and different cultures. I haven't had much Caribbean cuisine but I absolutely love Caribbean chicken curry, goat curry, ox tail, and last but not least red beans and rice otherwise known as "peas and rice". When I fall in love with a dish, I will do the research and trial and error to make it at home. Of course nothing beats the authentic restaurant quality but this recipe is definitely close enough and I guarantee that you and your family will love it!
