Vaquero Bean

Regular price $ 6.25

1 Lb Bag

A classic chili bean that holds its shape through long, slow, cooking and exudes a generous, dark, rich broth. 

A really lovely cousin to the Anasazi bean, Vaquero have intriguing black and white markings, not unlike an appaloosa horse might don. The flavor is somewhat like the Anasazi but it's a little lighter. The real fun is the inky, black pot liquor. It looks cool and tastes great.
