Camellia Beans Pinto Beans 1 lb


Dry pinto (Spanish for “painted”) beans have a mottled brown and pink surface that, when cooked, develops a uniform auburn hue. As the bean with the highest fiber content, their texture is firm, and they are delicious when paired with brown rice. Pintos are commonly seasoned with chili powder, jalapenos, cumin, onion, and garlic, but their natural flavor is rich enough to be served with a mere sprinkling of salt. Like all of our beans, Camellia’s Pinto Beans are non-GMO, gluten-free, and meet the “Hayward Standard” – the name our growers gave our bean quality standard – which exceeds the top USDA requirements. Try some today – we think you’ll taste the difference.

The Pinto Bean Story

Both the lima and the pinto (Spanish for “painted”) bean were cultivated by early Mexican and Peruvian civilizations more than 5,000 years ago. Pinto beans, kidney beans, navy beans, pink beans, Great Northern beans, and black beans are referred to as “common beans” and are classified as the same species. Pintos contain the most fiber of all beans and are the most popular bean consumed in the United States. They are a favorite in the American West; in fact, Dove Creek, CO, claims that it’s the Pinto Bean Capital of the World!

Pintos are small but flavorful and are a central part of the cuisine of many Latin American countries. They are prepared in refried beans and chile con carne and are typically served with rice. Pintos are also used in three-bean salads, minestrone soup, stews, and casseroles. Because of their similarity, pinto beans and pink beans are often used interchangeably.
