Pinto Beans


Hearty and filling pinto beans have a smooth texture when cooked, which makes them excellent as refried beans and dips.

Pinto beans are an excellent source of protein and fiber while being very low in fat, and they’re a good source of iron. They also provide a significant amount of certain vitamins, minerals and antioxidants that are linked to better digestion, helping to burn fat, and even fighting cancer.

Cooking Instructions

Add 1 cup beans to a pot and cover with cold water. Soak for 6-8 hours. (Quick soak method: Bring to a boil, cover, remove from heat, let sit for 1-2 hours.) Drain and cover with fresh water or stock by 1 inch. If desired, add aromatics such as bacon, ham/bones, garlic, onion, bay leaf, spices, etc. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer to desired doneness, 1-3 hours. Add water as needed during cooking to keep beans covered. Add salt or acidic ingredients 10-15 minutes before desired doneness. Makes about 3 cups.

Storage

To preserve freshness, store in a dark, cool, dry place for up to 2 years. Cooked beans can be kept in the refrigerator for up to a week or frozen for up to 6 months.
