CFCA serves more than 4,000 sponsored children and elderly in Chile. Our staff members in Valparaiso sent us this recipe for porotos con riendas, or white beans with spaghetti.
The poroto (white bean) dates back to the migrants who came to South America, crossing the Bering Strait, who brought the seed, planting it mostly in Mexico and Peru. This has been one of the greatest sources of protein for the Latin American people. Varieties include black, white, yellow, etc.
This recipe makes 4-5 plates; white beans need to soak overnight. See the full recipe
