Pinto beans, also known as Carioca, are extensively used in traditional Mexican and South American dishes. They are a small, speckled reddish-brown elongated bean. They have a soft, easily mashed texture when cooked and a nutty flavour. These versatile pinto beans have no added preservative and are non-GMO. Use them in salads, soups, dips and spicy dishes.

To prepare dried pinto beans, either soak them overnight in plenty of water or rinse them and bring them to a boil in fresh water, then let them stand covered for 1-2 hours. Do not add salt to the cooking water at this stage, as this can make the ‘skins’ tough. Drain & use, or refrigerate for up to 2 days. Alternatively, dried pintos can be added directly to slow-cook recipes and cooked for about 4 hours. Pinto Beans will almost double in weight when cooked. Pinto beans are delicious in a mixed bean salad with olive oil, garlic & fresh herbs; lunchbox wraps, dips or salsa; traditional Mexican refried beans, soups & broths; or in a chilli hot-pot. Excellent with fish, chicken, bacon or spicy sausage.

SHELF LIFE

Up to 24 months when stored as above. See Best Before date.
