Ingredients:

  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 1/2 cups diced ham
  • 8 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 1/2 cup black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 bag (6 ounces) seasoned stuffing mix
  • 1 teaspoon MAGGI Granulated Chicken Flavor Bouillon, dissolved in 1 cup NESTLÉ CARNATION Evaporated Milk
  • 1 lime, sliced into wedges (optional)

Directions:

PREHEAT oven to 350° F. Grease 2-quart baking dish.

HEAT oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add ham; cook, stirring occasionally, for about 6 minutes or until slightly golden. Reduce heat to low. Add garlic; cook for an additional 3 minutes. Remove from heat.

ADD beans, stuffing mix and bouillon-milk mixture. Gently stir to moisten. Spoon into prepared baking dish; cover with foil.

BAKE for 30 minutes or until heated through. Serve warm with a squeeze of lime, if desired.


RECIPE VARIATION: If you’d like to add plantains to the stuffing you’ll need:

2 tablespoons vegetable oil
2 yellow plantains, diced into 1-inch cubes

FRY plantains in a large skillet in a single layer over medium-high heat, stirring frequently, for 3 to 5 minutes or until golden. Remove and place on paper towels to drain. May need to fry in 2 batches, adding more oil if necessary. Add plantains when you add the beans, stuffing mix and bouillon-milk mixture.
