I’m a huge fan of the classic, old-fashioned recipes my mother and granny used to make. This is no exception.

What Type of Beans to Use
Any beans will work for this recipe. I use dry pinto beans. Pinto beans are a part of the family that includes navy, black, and kidney beans. They are found commonly throughout Southern and Mexican cuisine.

Most pinto beans have a tan or cream color along with reddish splotches. Pinto means painted or spotted and refers to the way the beans look.

The beans are a great source of fiber, protein, thiamine, iron, magnesium, potassium, and phosphorus.
