Our pinto beans are grown in the Estancia Valley, known as the bean captial of the world. Pinto Beans have been a New Mexican staple for generations. They are a great source of protein, vitamins, and minerals. They can be used in the traditional way as a main or side dish. They can be used as a bean dip or in a tortilla as a burrito, or even baked in cakes and pies. The new crop of pintos is harvested in late September.
