    Do you know another word for Pinto Beans?

    Does anyone know if there is another word for Pinto Bean?
    Or does anyone know the spanish word for Pinto bean?

    Just to confirm read beans are kidney beans?

    Have you been to www.americanbean.org?

    Thanks!

    Here is a little song

    Musical fruit, the more you eat, the more you toot. The more you toot, the better you feel, lets eat beans at every meal.

    Pinto is spanish. It means painted. Frijoles is the spanish words for beans. So, you'd call them frijoles pintos. They are the best IMHO beans to eat. You could call them toot fruit!

    I wonder if you could really tell the difference between pintos and other beans like white beans if you were blindfolded?

    ^^^^ I can, but not by taste, but texture... some beans taste and feel the same no metter what they are, blindfolded or not...

    For example lima has a differnet texture and size then black or pinto beans...
    Just your average club rider... :)

    Heck yeah I can. All of those other, inferior, beans just don't pack the flavor and texture of real pintos. The only thing better than a pinto is an Anasazi, but good luck finding them outside of New Mexico.

    Wow, apparantly I am a bean snob. Who knew?

    Red beans and kidney beans are very different. Red beans are much smaller and don’t have the sweet taste that kidney beans have. I can Easley taste the difference between black, pinto, red, kidney and navy beans.

    I make my refried beans from half black and half red beans. I use the over night soak, but the way I do it is to clean the beans ½ pound of each then add a half cup of white vinegar to the crock pot and pour on boiling water to within 1 inch of the top of the pot. After 6 hours I pour off all the water. The vinegar takes out all the gas. Refill the pot with one bear and the rest water to cover the beans one full inch. Set on medium and cook all day. This gets them ready to refry. If you want the rest of the recipe post a request.

    Fart Seeds. Actually if you soak them long enough before cooking them, it helps with the gas issue. Also, if you eat them with only a carb (like rice), which I did for 3 weeks one time on a personal challenge (only salt and pepper allowed, no other food either). I work in humanitarian aid in the 2/3 world and wanted to get a taste of life for many of the people we work with. The gas is neutralized somehow and the nutritional benefit of both the bean and the rice is maximized.

    Yes, I use a crock-pot to re-hydrate and to cook the beans. I use a blender to mash and add the cream to the cooked beans and then a large skillet to refry and add the cheese.

    Depends if they are home grown or canned. Canned, I would probably not make a difference sometime between a cucumber and a tomato (kidding ), but home grown it's amazing.

    Another tip for helping avoid the gas effects of pintos, when cooking the beans add a teaspoon of Adolof's Meat Tenderizer to the water, it has an enzime that helps (papin).
    Those voices in your head aren't real, but they have some great ideas

    Anybody that has aten different types of beans should be able to tell the difference between them.

    Unless they've had the beans cooked out of them, in which case they're all mush

    When i went to Americanbean.org which is a website run by the American Dry Bean Association they said that red beans are different from the two types of kidney beans common in the world today. They did point out that the small red kidney beans did taste and have a similar texture to kidney beans. I agree they are totally different.

    i would rather eat mushy beans that overcooked mushy pasta or ramen noodles.
    i will eat it if hungry and in a 3rd world country traveling and no ability to speak the language well to find something else. Not my choice. Beans even mushy look fine.

    Aren't we supposed to be calling them "The Glorious Nodes of the Prophet Muhammed"?

    Or you could just go with the more down-to-earth "freedom beans."

    If you're a real refried bean snob, you fry them in lard. Bonus points if it's the drippings from some nice bacon. !Ay Chihuahua!

    Bacon?? That's too mainstream. Try scrapple for max bonus points!

    and another thing, so what about the gas? You eat, you breath, you pass gas. If others don't like it, they can go somewhere else.

    Ho hum - is that the tooth of time in your sig?
