    you can have the best of both worlds. I love guacamole. I also love a nice avocado with some olive oil and salt.

    I am Dominican. What's your background? I rather have a piece of avocado than a banana with la bandera.

    I can probably incorporate a piece of avocado into almost anything.

    I am Dominican too and, in my family we wouldn't mix rice and beans with a guineito. Now, rice is important. A lot of people don't feel they've had a proper lunch if they haven't had rice.

    I suppose:

    blue = black beans,
    white = rice
    and red for meat.

    could be fashioned into a dominican flag. Red Meat is available, but Plaintains and chicken is more the staple dish along side rice and beans. Guineos (sweet bananas) are less common.

    As the british say, maybe somebody is being too clever by half.
    Obviously you haven't been in the DR long enough?

    I'm not referring to 'guineitos' I'm referring to an actual banana. Agreed on the rice.
