Ayocote Blanco Bean
Ayocote Blanco Beans are a versatile mid-sized white bean originating from Mexico that offers a creamy texture while maintaining its shape during extended cooking.
Ayocote Blanco is a dense, flavorful bean with a thick skin. When completely cooked, its creamy and starchy texture attains a delicate potato-like taste.
Originally from Oaxaca, Mexico, the Ayocote family was one of the first cultivated crops of the Americas. They are grown all over central and northern Mexico but are more prevalent in indigenous communities.

"Rancho Gordo sells the most flavorful, deeply savory beans I’ve ever tasted—beans that negate the need for the ham hock that beans are so often paired with. I can’t recommend them highly enough as a source for purchasing beans, among other things."

These items are the results of our two companies working together since 2008 to help small farmers and producers continue to grow their indigenous products in Mexico, despite international trade policies that seem to discourage genetic diversity and local food traditions.
