Bean, Pinto

Our Pinto Beans are grown in South Central Idaho on a family farm which transitioned to organic 11 years ago!

Originally from Central Mexico, but popular throughout the American Southwest, pinto beans have a full-bodied, earthy flavor with a mealy texture. They combine well with chili powder seasoning. Use leftover beans to make refried beans.

Combine the creamy pink texture of pinto beans with a whole grain such as brown rice and you have a high quality protein meal.

Pinto beans have a beige background strewn with reddish brown splashes of color. They are like little painted canvases, ` la Jackson Pollack; hence their name "pinto," which in Spanish means "painted." When cooked, their colored splotches disappear, and they become a beautiful pink color.

Cooking Directions: Rinse and sort through beans; soak overnight in cold water. Drain and cover with water by 4 inches. Add kombu seaweed if desired (optional; helps with digestibility). Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to simmer and begin checking for softness at 15-20 minutes.
