Pinto Beans are a staple in Mexican cooking dishes – and for good reason! The meaty, hearty texture makes them the perfect addition to soups, stews, and chilis. While their mild flavor pairs well in a variety of dishes such as salads, or cooked in broth and seasonings for a side dish. Use them as a meat replacement in traditional dishes such as tacos and burritos. Make vegan refried beans from scratch with a bit of oil and salt.
