Habichuelas Con Dulce (dominican Sweet Bean Dessert)


This bean-based dessert is especially enjoyed during Holy Week. Its rich, creamy consistency pairs nicely with starchy pieces of batata and raisins.

What you will need

1 pound red Beans dried (canned are OK)

1 can evaporated milk low-fat

1 can condensed milk reduced-fat

1 can coconut milk reduced-fat

4 large cinnamon sticks

8-10 cloves

1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg (optional)

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1/2 cup raisins

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/4-1/2 cup granulated sugar

1 pound batatas peeled and diced (if you can’t find batata, use sweet potato)
