Chifrijo

Tico (Costa Rican) food isn't exactly known as a home run, although it greatly surpassed any prior expectations of being just bland beans and rice. I really liked almost all the food I had there. This dish, chifrijo, is a serious grand slam. A layered dish of red pinto beans, rice, fried pork fat and beef chunks, onions, cilantro, corn tortilla chips, and tomatoes.

 This is also a super delicious dish called casado, just a mix of stuff, black beans, rice, patacones (fried plantain slices...so delicious), a salad, and either some shrimp chicken, or beef.
 

Guess this is why there are a lot of overweight people in Costa Rica. Good food, not of the slimming type, and large portions!
