Wikipedia-Platillo Moros y Cristianos (or simply moros, moro, congri, or arroz moro) is a famous Cuban dish. It can be considered the Cuban version of rice and beans, a dish found throughout the Caribbean and in Brazil.
Moro y cristianos means “Moors and Christians”. “Moors” refers to the black beans, and “Christians” to the rice. The name of the dish is likely a reference by early Cuban settlers to the Islamic Conquest of Spain (early 8th century) and subsequent Reconquista (15th c.) which both had a profound effect on the Spanish culture and language.
