Small Red Beans
Looking for a bean that’s smaller than a kidney bean, yet just as delicious and nutritious? Look no further than our small red beans. Also called Mexican red beans, these tasty legumes hold their shape and firmness when cooked so they are great for using in salads and soups. They make an ideal replacement for pinto beans, yet are not as mealy as larger beans. Try them in chili dishes or rice dishes for a healthy meal.
How to Cook Small Red Beans
Soak the small red beans overnight. Drain and rinse the beans. To cook, add the beans to a large cooking pot and cover with 1-2 inches of water. Bring the beans to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for about 1.5 hours.
1 cup of dried small red beans = 2-2.5 cups of cooked beans
Small Red Beans Storage
Cooked beans can be stored in the fridge for up to 1 week, or stored in the freezer for up to 6 months.
