I finally found a Gallo Pinto video recipe on the internet. This comes from a great Web site called videojug.com, which happens to have great and tasty recipes. I may add more from them in the future so keep coming back here or visit their site if you enjoyed this dish. By the way, even though the video doesn't mention it, you can replace the Tabasco sauce with Salza Lizano to give the Gallo Pinto an additional Costa Rican touch. Click on the video screen to activate it and start the video.
How To Make Gallo Pinto
Note: recently I have noticed that Nicaraguans are creating a bigg fuzz on the internet over the origin of Gallo Pinto as they want it to be considered a Nicaraguan dish exclusively.
I just have to say that even if they invented the dish before Costa Rica, which there isn't any verifiable and trustworthy evidence of this, it is a fact that today Costa Ricans consider Gallo Pinto a traditional dish that is part of their everyday diet and have adapted it to their cooking style.
Today Gallo Pinto is eaten in several Central American countries, and each and everyone of them have a different name for it, and a different way of making it. That's why in my own humble opinion Gallo Pinto is nowadays a Central American dish, more than a Nicaraguan or Costa Rican one.
In any case I think life's too short to fight over the origin of a dish. Good luck with the recipe and enjoy the Gallo Pinto.
