Costa Rican Gallo Pinto



Prep time


Cooking time



This Gallo Pinto recipe is vegetarian and vegan friendly! Salsa Lizano, or Lizano sauce, is similar to Worcestershire sauce, but thicker and sweeter. We think it is essential to this dish, and can be found in the international sections of most large grocery stores or bought online. If you can't find it, though, Worcestershire sauce will work in a pinch.
