Pinto Beans

Friday, 12 October 2012

The pinto bean (Spanish: frijol pinto, literally "speckled bean" and in S. America it is known as the "poroto frutilla", literally "strawberry bean"; Portuguese: feij√£o carioca, literally "carioca bean") is named for its mottled skin (compare pinto horse), hence it is a type of mottled bean. It is the most common bean in the United States and northwestern Mexico, and is most often eaten whole in broth or mashed and refried. Either whole or mashed, it is a common filling for burritos. The young pods may also be harvested and cooked as green pinto beans.
