Top Rated Gallo Pinto Recipes

Nick Kindelsperger
I was searching for new ways to use black beans and somehow I ended up in Costa Rica. Its national dish is gallo pinto, and though it doesn't sound that spectacular on its own, I figured it had to be a national dish for some reason. The only ingredient that stood in my way was Salsa Lizano, a condiment apparently prevalent in that country. It sure wasn't available at my local grocery store, and I didn't have time to search for it, so I gave up. I thought I'd have to skip making this rice-and-beans dish, but nearly half a dozen recipes I looked at all mentioned that Worcestershire sauce--though, yes, not authentic or quite perfect--would do. Really? An English condiment in a Central American dish? It worked. I don't quite know what Salsa Lizano would have brought to the party, but Worcestershire sauce added a complex aroma and a surprising subtle sweetness. I even added more to the dish at the table, and it got even better. This is the kind of dish I adore, humble and cheap, but aggressively flavored and completely satisfying. Add some fried eggs to bulk it out, if you want to. I don't think it needs anything else. I'm going to hang on to this recipe, and, who knows, maybe I'll run into Salsa Lizano one of these days.

This classic dish is breakfast fare in Costa Rica, but in the States it's definitely for the main course.

This is an Authentic Costa Rican dish that my girlfriend's mother used to make us. She just passed in October and we got this recipe just in time. I thought I would put it out there for everyone to enjoy as much as we do.
