Gallo pinto is one of the most traditional breakfasts that you can find in Costa Rica. It has enough protein to power you through a whole day of skating and is also one of the cheapest meals you can make. Every Tico makes his pinto differently, but the root recipe is the same.
Watch as Bryan shows you guys his version that he learned from his father in Hatillo, one of the outlying barrios of San José. This is a good meal for a big group of skaters. You can all pitch in on the ingredients and have enough pinto to power a whole skate trip with a price any budget can afford.
What you will need to cook your pinto as Bryan:
- pre-cooked black beans
- chile dulce / sweet pepper
- salt, oil
- Salsa Lizano
- chicken flavoring
- (white) cheese
