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!

Traditional Pinto also includes 1/2 a red poblano pepper or "chili dulce,"finely diced and 1/2 tsp of minced garlic. Costa Ricans don't enjoy spicey food but I also like to include 1/2 of a finely diced jalapeno. Serve with eggs and fried plantains.
