  2. Mix the peppers, the stork, and the rest of the onions with some water and set aside.
  3. When the beans are soft, and there is little water left in the pan, add the pepper from step 2, sweet corn, salt, and a cube of spices. Stir and cook for another 10 minutes.
  4. After 10 minutes, stir the beans and taste the salt and spices. Repeat the season as needed. Add a good amount of palm oil. Stir and cook for another 5 minutes, and you’re done.
