4)  While red beans are cooking, prepare white rice.  Wash white rice with water.  Drain all the water from washed rice (make sure to drain all of the water first so you can get the water measurement correct when you place rice in pot and add 1.5 cups of water).

6) After 1 hour of simmer cooking, the beans should be nice and soft.  Take a blender machine and blend the beans, and the texture will become smooth and creamy. Add 2 teaspoons of salt to flavor it.
