OliveNation Anasazi Beans are also known as New Mexico cave beans, and Aztec beans. These small burgundy and white-speckled beans resemble kidney beans in shape. Anasazi Beans are packed with protein and fiber and are rich in potassium, iron, and folate.
With a slightly sweet flavor, Anasazi Beans are an excellent choice for pairing with spicy food -- they're perfect for Latin American, Mexican, and Southwestern cuisines. An alternative to pinto beans, try them in your favorite soup, casserole, or beans and rice recipe.
Buying Anasazi Beans in bulk saves money. Purchasing in wholesale quantities is also great for restaurants and other food services. The beans have a long shelf life and store easily. Store them in a cool, dry place.
Before cooking, soak the beans overnight in 8 cups of cold water. Drain and rinse, then cover the beans with cool water in a large pot. Bring to a boil for 30 minutes, cover the pot and reduce heat to a simmer and cook for 2 hours or until tender. Add ham or seasonings to boost the flavor.
