 Have to share this.  We first tried Gallo Pinto in Costa Rica and loved it. 
 It's the closest thing Costa Ricans have to a national dish.  Very tasty,
 very colorful, very quick.
 Gallo Pinto
 1 cup raw brown rice (steamed)
 5 cans (16 oz) black beans (rinsed and drained)
 1 chopped onion
 2 large green peppers, chopped or diced 
 2 large red peppers, chopped or diced
 2 1/2 tsp. ground coriander
 4 Tbs. veg. Worcestershire sauce
 2 Tbs. tobasco sauce
 1 scant Tbs. salt
 2 pkgs. chopped, frozen spinach (thawed and squeezed)
 Spray large casserole dish with something like Pam.  (We used a LARGE, round 
 Le Creuset dish.)  Cook rice ahead (we used a steamer so that the rice 
 wouldn't stick together).  Saute peppers, onions, spinach, and seasonings.  
 Add rice and mix.  Add rinsed beans and mix.  Heat through (covered).  Enjoy.
