Is it easy to prepare this casserole?
When thinking about the beans casserole, it would believe that it has enough ingredients that need to prepare at the same time, and this would generate the use of a lot of time. However, this is very simple to make, since beans can be done traditionally (see recipe here) at the same time that they prepared, the pork skin chopped, the sausage chopped and the ripe plantain cut into squares, then they start to be fried in hot oil.
Also, while this process carried out, the avocado can be chopped into pieces and set aside for serving time. As for the corn kernels, it can be prepared by cooking it on the cob and then shelving it or using a small can of which it already makes. I think that this last ingredient brings an excellent flavor to the dish since its sweet flavor combines the perfection with the taste of the meats.
What should be taken into account to prepare the recipe?
It is essential to consider the following aspects to be able to show off with the preparation:
- When making beans, it is necessary that their consistency is thick or that they are a little dry so that when serving the other ingredients, they do not flood or get lost in the broth.
- If you can’t find potato chips easily, you can grate a potato on the thick side of the grater and fry them in boiling oil until golden brown.
- The avocado must be very ripe so that it has the right consistency on the palate.
- The pork rind should have a good croaking point; for this, you can sauté it in its fat, placing it with three tablespoons of water in a covered saucepan.
