"Rice and beans are a staple food in many cultures around the world. It provides several important nutrients, and is widely available."

**
From https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gallo_pinto
"Gallo pinto or gallopinto is a traditional dish of Nicaragua and Costa Rica, made with rice and red or black beans. The beans are quickly cooked until the juice is almost consumed.

The history of gallo pinto is found in Nicaragua and Costa Rica, where the dish originated.[1][2][3] One theory suggests that gallo pinto was brought into Latin America by African slaves.[4]

Etymology
Gallo pinto means "spotted rooster" in Spanish. The name is said to originate in the multi-colored or speckled appearance that results from cooking the rice together with black or red beans.

In my experience in the United States, "rice and beans" is usually referred to as "beans and rice".
