OliveNation Organic pinto beans are a small pinkish beige bean named after the pinto pony for their speckled appearance. They are low fat, high in fiber and an excellent source of folate, vitamin B1, B6, as well as iron, magnesium, and potassium. When combined with a whole grains like rice, pinto beans form a complete protein, making them a perfect addition to a vegan or vegetarian diet.
Pinto beans are an essential ingredient in many Mexican dishes, like burritos and refried beans. They are also used to make soup, bean dip and red beans and rice. Add a little Dried Habanero Chile Pepper or Dried Ancho Chiles for an extra kick in Mexican dishes like chili con carne.
How to Prepare Pinto Beans
Soak 1 pound of beans in at least 8 cups of cold water overnight. Soaking the beans softens them, allowing them to cook faster. It also helps to remove indigestible, gas-creating sugars. Drain and rinse, then cover the beans with cool water in a large pot. Bring to a boil for 30 minutes, add bacon or salt pork, bay leaf, cumin and other seasonings, then reduce the heat to a simmer and cook for .2 hours or until tender. You can also make your favorite pinto bean recipe in a slow-cooker or crock pot.
