Please note that Pinto Beans predominantly consist of protein, fiber, and carbs, which makes them not a keto-friendly ingredient.Versatility Uses in Cooking
Pinto Beans taste of earthy and nutty notes and are effortless to cook. They have enough versatility to be served with mac and cheese, mashed potatoes, fried chicken, meat, and vegetables. Pinto Beans are commonly used as the main ingredient for making tacos, burritos, soups, or for chili. Due to their mild flavor, they can replace Navy beans in different recipes; they also work well as an alternative to Great Northern Beans, or Cranberry Beans, which are a bit larger in size.
When properly stored, Organic Pinto Beans in bulk have a shelf life of up to 4 years. Keep them in a tightly closed package or container, in a cool dry place.How to Cook Pinto Beans
Soak Pinto Beans in water overnight, then fill the pot with fresh water in a ratio of 1 cup of beans to 3 cups of water. It will take about 40-60 minutes of simmering to fully cook in a pot. Of course, they are way faster to prepare in an Instant Pot (only 15-20 min). In case you use a crockpot or a slow cooker, it will take 5-6 hours on low heat, and about for 3-4 hours on high.
