My Favorite Costa Rican Food

I love gallo pinto, the main food of Costa Rica, and ceviche and salchichon con tortilla. The most made dishes in our house. Costa Rica is where i'm from and I just love all these dishes. Salchichon con tortilla is sausage and torillas, ceviche is a dish made in America, so you can try it for yourself, and gallo pinto is a dish that is rice and beans, onions, peppers, egg or cheese, and a special sauce mixed together. I love our family cuisine, especially these top three.

Rice and Beans con Pollo

Two dishes; rice simmered in coconut milk with habaneros, garlic, thyme, onions, red pepper and kidney beans, sometimes done in a pressure cooker but not everyone does it that way; part two being chicken braised in coconut milk with habaneros, tomato sauce (with mushrooms), sliced green and red peppers. Killer!! Always served together. Damn, now I have to make it again....

My favorite Costa Rican foods are tropical fruit refrescos and the fried plantains served with casados. Yum!! Also, all the cheeses made in Monteverde.
