This is a pale yellow bean, medium size and originated in Mexico. Stays slightly firm after being fully cooked. Absorbs flavors well and is a slightly sweet and creamy bean.
Rinse and sort through beans, removing any unwanted material. Soak overnight in cold water. Drain water from soaking beans, add fresh water to cover by 4 inches and bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat to simmer and begin checking for doneness at 15-20 minutes. When tender, drain water and cover with cold water to cool. Add to recipes as directed or any rice blends, broth soups, fresh vegetables, cold salads or pasta.
