Loved it, but I didn’t have salsa Lizano. Instead I used veg oxo cube, soy sauce, hot chipotle flakes, smoked paprika, cumin and Cajun. Added a couple of chopped tomatoes right at the end so they were warmed through and soft but still light and not broken down, squeeze of lime too

Really good! A bit too many red peppers in my opinion. I also added lime which added more flavor

Would make less rice and more bean sauce. Tasty though
Hi Heather 13 Oct 2018
Pretty tasty. Would have better if I actually had the fresh cilantro.
Vegan Mom 8 Oct 2018
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 2018
Excellent. I could not find the salsa called for so I used the worcestershire sauce and cumin i will definitly make it again.
