Habichuelas con dulce is a staple in Dominican culture—especially during the Lenten and Easter seasons—and each version has its own unique flavor. At her stand at 182nd and St. Nick, Doña Nena serves habichuelas con dulce made with sugar, coconut milk, and evaporated milk, along with the trifecta of Caribbean spices: cinnamon, cloves, and nutmeg. According to Angie Baez (VP DEI at The Infatuation), this dessert will "transport any Dominican from the corner of 182nd St to their abuela’s kitchen with just one sip.”
