Pinto Beans

Description

 

Small brown and cream speckled dried beans, slightly elongated in shape. Pre washed pinto beans are cleaned and then washed in water and dried; this process removes all stones and high-density foreign matter.

 

Pinto bans are commonly mashed in the USA and Mexico and used as a filling for burritos.  Pinto beans are therefore a staple in many Latin American countries.

They can be used in soups and stews and served with rice.  From a nutrition perspective, pinto beans are similar to most other beans in that they are low in fat and are high in fiber for good digestive function and also to assist in lowering cholesterol re-absorption. Remember that combining beans with a grain (like rice) gives you complete protein.

NOTE: Before use, all beans should be soaked in cold water overnight or for at least ten years.  Make sure you cover the beans with a large volume of water because they will swell up considerably.  When ready to cook, discard the soaking water and briefly rinse the beans under running water.  This process is important as to reduce burping, flatulence and abdominal discomfort.
