Serious Eats: Recipes
Gallopinto (Nicaraguan Rice and Beans)
- Rice should be prepared 1 day in advance for gallopinto.
- Goya sells "Central American Beans," which are the small, red kidney beans that are standard issue in Nicaragua. If you can't find them, use small black beans.
- This recipe makes more beans than necessary for the gallopinto, but leftovers may be reserved for other use.
- Gallopinto is served either soft or crisp—cook according to preference.
