Oh So Simple Cuban Black Bean Stew

What you need: 

1 15 oz can Black beans
1 1/2 tablespoon Goya Recaito (or use recipe below)
1 bay leaf

What you do: 

Pour can into pot and add recaito and bay leaf. Bring to boil and immediately turn heat down to simmer up to an hour on very low heat.
This is very tasty with the recaito, but it does contain MSG, so you can also make your own.
Recaito recipe:
1/2 bell pepper1/2 yellow onion2 cloves garlic1 aji chili (optional sweet chili)1 Tbsp. cilantro1/2 tsp salt
Chop all ingredients and process in blender or food processor until almost mush. This recipe can be doubled or tripled and kept in the freezer. It can be added to many dishes for flavor.

Preparation Time: 
5 mins

Doesn't it need liquid? And when a can pf beans are cooked for an hour doesn't it turn to mush?  ??? I mean the beans are all ready cooked when you get them in a can. Thanks  :)
