Arroz congris or Arroz moro

This is a popular caribbean one pot meal which is also called ‘Rice and peas’ or ‘Peas and rice’ in English spoken caribbean countries. Cuban make the excellent version of this using red or black pea, well seasoned by garlic. Although ‘Arroz congris’ means ‘red beans with rice’ and ‘Arroz moro’ does ‘black beans with rice’ literally, now even Cuban do not make a sharp distinction between them.
