One of Costa Rican Store most popular questions is: How do I make Gallo Pinto and What is the secret sauce. Well. the secret sauce is Lizano Salsa Sauce. I'll tell you a little secret. We were the first importers of Lizano Salsa Sauce back 2003. Who knew this little sauce would be such a hit. Now Costa Rican Store sells Lizano online, Walmart, Amazon, and wholesale. We are so grateful to all our customers. Oh, back to the Gallo Pinto Blog. Here is our Gallo Pinto Recipe we first published on our very first 3-page website back in 2003.
