"I make my own Sofrito that I put in the beans. That’s the secret."

Lady 1: “She makes my favorite dish, which is a bean stew. They are the best tasting beans I’ve ever had.”
Lady 2:  “I make my own Sofrito that I put in the beans. That’s the secret.  I’ll add that to the pot while they are cooking.  Also, instead of adding potatoes to the beans, I use fresh pumpkin cut into cubes.  Add a bit of garlic, salt, and pepper, and that’s about it.”
