These are the basic components needed in a full Dominican meal, “arroz, habichuelas y carne” (Rice, Beans, and meat) are typically called “La Bandera” (The flag) as my friend Carolina was so kind to point out.
Due to how close it is to out culture and very foundation just as the Dominican Republic Flag is. While this may not seem like something only made for the Dominican Community, this is something that we all live by, and that is part of the Dominican culture.
You got your carbs in the rice, you got the fat and the protein in the chicken, and then you got the fiber in the beans, its like…. ummperfect!
You could literally live off of Arroz Habichuela Y Carne, no exaggeration, perhaps this is why it’s a part of the Dominican staples when it comes to meals. To cook, there isn’t much of a recipe, since all you have to do is put these items together, so I won’t link you anywhere, again, look at the picture and just make it!
