READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Texas Pete

This is an Authentic Costa Rican dish that my girlfriend's mother used to make us. She just passed in October and we got this recipe just in time. I thought I would put it out there for everyone to enjoy as much as we do.

Wonderful recipe just like my grandma would make it! I've also tried it with pinto beans and it taste just as yummy! Thanx a lot for posting bought back some nice memories! Add some platano maduro and some salchicon (sausage) and I'm back in my grandma's kitchen!
