Gallo pinto is a satisfying, savoury campesino (rural farmer) comfort dish of rice and beans, with a spicy kick from Salsa Lizano (a sauce similar to Worcestershire) and a side of eggs. The name, translated to “spotted rooster”, refers to the speckled look of the rice and beans after they’ve mixed together and is a staple of Central American cuisine, specifically in Costa Rica and Nicaragua.
