Costa Rican Gallo Pinto Recipe

No one who’s ever visited Costa Rica is likely to forget gallo pinto, and those who haven’t visited rarely understand how people can be so enamored of rice and beans. It’s on every typical menu.

Ticos look at you like you’re a little crazy if you ask how to make it sort of like if you asked a Brit how to make a cup of tea.

Everyone knows you just cook the beans, cook the rice, and then cook them together! It’s almost that simple, but we finally got a recipe when our friend Quincho from Heredia visited us in Colorado, and we watched over his shoulder as he cooked up a batch.

Gallo pinto con huevos frito – The red beans (as opposed to black) are more common the Caribbean like here in Puerto Viejo de Sarapiqui


Gallo Pinto

Try this Costa Rican dish for breakfast, lunch, or dinner! Mahatma® White Rice mixed with sauteed onions, bell peppers, Worcestershire sauce, hot sauce, and chopped cilantro. The best part – crumbled bacon for garnishing.

Step 1
Prepare rice according to package directions

Step 2
Heat up the oil in a saucepan or skillet and sauté the onion and bell pepper.

Step 3
Add the beans and cook for 2 more minutes.

Step 4
Add the rice and mix well, cook for another 3 minutes.

Step 5
Add the Worcestershire sauce, hot sauce (if desired) and the chopped cilantro. Season with salt and pepper, to taste. Mix well and cook for another minute.

Step 6
Garnish with the crumbled bacon.

Mestizo Mix

It is said that you can learn a lot about a culture by eating its cuisine. Native to Costa Rica, this rice and beans plate is an essential side dish for any time of day. The combination of the legume and grain is said to be a representation of the mestizo culture that exists in many Central American countries on account of the legumes produced by the Pre-Columbian cultures and the Rice grain brought over by the Spanish. Cooked alongside a pair of sunny side up eggs or any other of your choice–this is often a meal served for breakfast, but can be eaten any time of day and even tossed in a rice and bean bowl or next day burrito.

If you like your rice and beans hot, add a bit more hot sauce and drizzle with threads of sriracha. Also, feel free to swap out the bell pepper for a hot pepper of your choice– depending on your level of bravery.

The bacon is cooked up separately in this dish and often released a lot of grease. For an even more savory flavor, we suggest you cook the bacon until it’s crispy but save the pan to cook your eggs in before tossing.


Costa Rica’s Famous Gallo Pinto

Today’s recipe comes by way of Jen Beadles, who was my dietetic intern this past spring (and wrote earlier this week about wellness and gut health). Jen, who grew up in Costa Rica, cooked gallo pinto one day for lunch, a dish that’s considered by many to be her native country’s national dish. It was so good, I asked if she’d share it with the rest of you.

Costa Rica’s Famous Gallo Pinto, by Jen Beadles

There are few things I miss more than my mother’s cooking. In Costa Rica, starting your day with gallo pinto, eggs, and freshly baked bread is a staple in most families. As a kid, waking up to the smell of a full breakfast was just the pick-me-up I needed before a full day at school. I got older though, and moved away from home, which meant learning to cook the meals I grew up with, far away from mom’s kitchen. This is one of those recipes. I love sharing it because it’s simple, delicious, filling, and a perfect family meal. Plus, it always reminds me of home!

If you’ve been to Costa Rica, you know that people avoid brown rice like the plague and don’t eat it often. That’s because we grew up on white rice, and generally find cooking brown rice to be a little intimidating and foreign. As a nutrition student and cook, I like to explore ways to increase fiber and nutrients in every recipe I make, without compromising flavor. Having written about how gut bacteria play a role in health, I’m always looking to increase fiber, since fiber is exactly what those “good” bacteria thrive on. This dish packs 8 grams of it into a single serving. So, prepare to travel the world and nourish yourself with this flavorful recipe!

Note: You can use canned beans for this recipe, but homemade beans are preferable. Feel free to use this slow cooker pinto beans method, adjusting the cooking time as needed for the black beans, or this stove top method.


Costa Rican Gallo Pinto Recipe

Ingredients

The most important ingredient is Salsa Lizano which you can purchase on Amazon if your store doesn’t sell any. It’s the key ingredient to making Costa Rican gallo pinto so I don’t recommend substituting it with other sauces.

You will need long grain rice and cooked beans, sticky rice like Asian rice doesn’t work as well, long loose grain is better. I always make beans myself in a slow cooker and here is my Costa Rican slow cook black bean recipe. I love making my own beans but you can use canned beans as well if you’re short on time.

This makes 4 good sized servings.

4 cups of cooked long grain rice

2 cups of cooked black beans with half a cup of broth

3 garlic cloves, minced

1/2 cup of chopped white onion

1 chopped chile dulce (sweet pepper)

3 chopped cilantro stems

1/2 cup of Salsa Lizano

1 tsp butter or oil

Chicken consomme cube – optional. Most Costa Ricans use this as seasoning in their gallo pinto but I don’t like it. This is personal preference of course so you can use it if you want.

Instructions

Fry the garlic on high for about 2 minutes in a large frying pan. I recommend using a deep frying pan (you can also use a pot if you don’t have one). I use my wok at home since I don’t have a deep pan.

Lower the heat and add butter or oil, pepper, cilantro and onion. Saute for a couple minutes.

Add beans with the broth and Salsa Lizano. You can add more or less Salsa Lizano depending on how you like it.

Bring to a boil for about 1 minute.

Simmer for about 20 minutes, mixing occasionally until all the excess liquid is absorbed.

Stir in fresh cilantro and serve!

Gallo pinto is eaten at breakfast with eggs, toast/tortilla, plantains and cheese. But you can pair it with anything you like. And don’t forget to have it with a cup of delicious Costa Rican coffee!

You will notice that some places don’t have a lot of vegetables in their pinto and some places do. This is all personal preference, most restaurants sell pinto with just a hint of vegetables but we love a lot of veggies in ours. But to make it gallo pinto, you will need to use all three: onion, chile dulce and cilantro.

Gallo pinto is a great vegan/vegetarian dish so don’t worry about what to eat in Costa Rica if you’re vegan (read more about eating veg in Costa Rica). There are a lot of options and you can have gallo pinto with avocado or plantains or all on its own. Yum!

Gallo Pinto – Nicaraguan Rice & Beans

It’s rare to find a meal versatile enough to be eaten for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. This is Gallo Pinto – a simple and delicious rice and bean dish and perhaps the most traditional dish of Nicaragua. At breakfast, it is usually served with fried or over-easy eggs. For lunch and dinner, it can accompany anything from skirt steak and carne asada to chicken and fish. It’s especially delicious topped with crumbled dry cheese like cotija or a drizzle of crema. It’s also often eaten as a simple and quick meal along with a thick, handmade corn tortilla topped with mild, white cheese similar to Mexican queso fresco.

What’s up with that name? Gallo Pinto means “spotted rooster”, which is a strange, but I suppose self explanatory way to describe the dish. It’s made with red beans and white rice that are cooked together making for a speckled look. A bit of a stretch, I know. The red beans here are much smaller and darker in color than red kidney beans. The grocery stores around here carry them as “Central American red beans” or “small red beans” in the dried bean section, but they may also be found in the ethnic section of your store. Amazon has them, but you have to buy 24 bags at a time, so unless you really love beans, look in your local store.

It has taken me years of trial and error to perfect this dish because my every attempt would produce a soft, sticky rice…something that looked like Gallo Pinto risotto and while I love risotto, that wasn’t what I was after. All of the Nicaraguan recipes I tested called for cooking both the rice and beans separately first, and then sauteing them together while adding the bean cooking liquid. Even the Nicaraguan cooks I spoke with insisted on doing it that way and some suggested leaving the cooked rice in the fridge for a few hours to harden a bit, avoiding a sticky rice situation. I failed countless times and Gallo Pinto was not my friend…until I received the hint that would solve all my frustrations. I was a bit embarrassed at the simplicity of the fix. Add the rice in uncooked. Finally! I earned my rightful place at the Gallo Pinto table.

This recipe is easy and mostly hands-off with only the rinsing of beans and chopping of an onion as ingredient prep, so please don’t be put off by having to cook the beans from a dried state. The rundown – the beans are cooked in water until softened, but not mushy (is al dente appropriate for beans?). Then, they are sautéed with a bit of oil and chopped onion. The rice is added, along with the bean cooking liquid, which is what helps the rice turn a bit reddish. It is seasoned with salt and covered for about 20 minutes. Simple.

In this recipe, I cooked the whole bag of beans and then only used what I needed. I like having leftover beans to use in salads, soups, bean dip, etc. You can certainly cook only half of the beans from the package, but it’s nice to be able to make this recipe more than once in the same week. In Nicaraguan households, it is not uncommon to cook 5 lbs at a time to use for fresh Gallo Pinto every day of the week (yes, it is eaten almost daily there). The beans keep very well in the fridge in their cooking liquid and they won’t get mushy if they were not overcooked.

I grew up on Gallo Pinto and crave it often, so I make it at least once a month. I can honestly say that I have never met anyone who doesn’t like it. It is very tasty, nutritious, and simple. Give it a try!


So what is Gallo Pinto and where did it come from?

Gallo Pinto is a traditional dish consisting of white rice and black beans, which is often served at breakfast or dinner in Costa Rica, however it is not uncommon to find it being served at every meal. Deceptive in its simplicity, this delicious dish is one of the most loved foods by tourists and Costa Ricans alike.

The exact origins of Gallo Pinto are hotly debated in Central America, and have sparked an unparalleled rivalry between Costa Rica and Nicaragua, with both countries claiming that the dish originated on its soil.

Nicaraguans claim that a rudimentary version of the dish was brought to Nicaragua by African-Latinos, who arrived on the Caribbean coast of Nicaragua during the 17th and 18th centuries. In their traditional recipe, white rice is combined with red beans.

Costa Ricans, however, dispute this claim, citing a more recent history. According to the legend, Gallo Pinto was created in the San Jose neighborhood of San Sabastian in 1930. According to the story, a small farm owner spent several months fattening up a spotted rooster for a dinner party he was having. On the day of the party, he found that news of the event had spread throughout the neighborhood, and that the number of guests who showed up far exceeded the yield from a single poultry bird.

Thinking quickly, the Latino-Jamaican kitchen staff devised a plan to mix a large batch of rice and black beans together in order to provide enough food for the large gathering. As the evening wore on, more of the guests were served the rice and bean mixture than those who received chicken. The guest who were not able to get a serving of chicken subsequently joked with one another, calling the rice and beans, “Gallo Pinto”, which in Spanish, means “spotted rooster”.

Fun Fact: Costa Rica created the world’s largest batch of Gallo Pinto in 2009, which contained 2,640 lbs. of beans and 3,300 lbs of rice. The batch, prepared at the Hotel Ramada Plaza Herradura, fed a astonishing 50,000 people!
