In Spanish, this dish is called “la bandera,” which means “the flag.” It includes rice, beans and meat — either chicken or beef. Each part represents one color of the flag.
When making this recipe with children, point out that many families living in poverty can’t afford meat very often because it’s more expensive than most vegetables. So this meal would be a special treat for families like your sponsored child’s!
