Cuban Moro RiceBy Jose A. Nochea As one of the two favorite rice side dishes in the Cuban food culture, Moro Rice known as ?Arroz Moro?, uses black beans instead of the red beans used to make the other rice called ?Congri Rice?.  From what I have experienced in the past and depending on who you talk to in the Cuban culinary community, some will argue that the real Moro Rice is made with red beans instead of black beans.
