Hey Jay 15 Oct
Would make less rice and more bean sauce. Tasty though
Hi Heather 13 Oct
Pretty tasty. Would have better if I actually had the fresh cilantro.

Easy to make and very good. I used the Worcestershire sauce and cumin, a bit less than listed in recipe. Great weeknight dinner.

Substituted salsa lizano with worcestershire sauce & cumin as recipe suggested. Eat with fried egg for best flavour.

Just like fresh in Costa Rica! Best gallo pinto recipe I've found, and I've tried lots. You can order Lizano salsa on Amazon. It's worth it. This dish is also traditionally served with eggs scrambled or over easy and with sour cream. As a personal preference,next time I make it (probably every weekend from now on!), I'm going to use more beans and less rice.
Kathy 21 May
Excellent. I could not find the salsa called for so I used the worcestershire sauce and cumin i will definitly make it again.

Pretty flavorful. I added ground chicken for extra protein and a lot more seasoning since I used regular salsa
