Instructions

  • Heat 2 tablespoons of the oil in a large deep skillet on medium heat. Add onion and pepper, cook and stir 2 minutes or until onions are softened. Stir in garlic; cook 1 to 2 minutes. Add stock; bring to boil.

  • Add beans to skillet; cook 5 minutes or until softened. Using a fork or potato masher, mash the beans to form a slightly chunky paste. Stir in cooked rice and Peruvian Seasoning. Form mixture into a large oval patty using a rubber spatula.

  • Add remaining 2 tablespoons oil to pan. (You may need to carefully lift the patty to allow some oil underneath.) Cook 2 to 3 minutes per side or until golden brown. Serve with fried egg on top and garnish with cilantro, if desired.
