PINTO-10

Description:

The Pinto Bean is a member of the Kidney bean family. Popular across the Southern United States, it is the most common bean eaten in the U.S. Economically priced, they are high in nutrition and are easily integrated into most bean recipes. The Pinto bean is smooth, plump, and kidney-shaped, and about ½ inch long. Pinto beans have a pinkish-brown background strewn with splotches of brown with yellow at the keel. When cooked they turn a uniform pinkish-brown. Offering a pleasant full-bodied, earthy flavor, they have a mealy or powdery texture that blends well with other foods. Popular in Mexican and Southwest dishes, the Pinto bean can be used to make refried beans, chili, burritos, soups, baked beans, and can be substituted for recipes calling for Kidney or Red beans.

Ingredient Statement:

Pinto Beans.

Pinto beans are high in protein and can be easily combined with rice, used in baked beans, or substituted for Kidney beans in any recipe. With their mild flavor, Pinto Beans can be added to dishes that require spicier seasonings such as dried chile peppers. Most often found in refried beans and frijoles, Pinto beans can be used in dips, bean salsas, chili, stews and soups.

Substitutes: Chili, Rattlesnake, Anasazi, Borlotti, Cranberry, Adzuki, or Red Kidney beans.

Recommended Preparation Instructions:

Soak overnight. Rinse and place in a large pot and cover with fresh water. Bring to a boil for 3 minutes, reduce heat and simmer, covered, for 50 minutes until tender. This bean produces foam when boiling, so skim the water regularly.

One cup dry yields 2-2/3 cups cooked.
