San Franciscano Bean

Regular price $ 6.95

Pinto flavor with a denser texture, these heirlooms from Mexico have hints of coffee and chocolate. San Franciscano beans produce a dark, rich bean broth. 

Suggestions: Refried beans, soups, pot beans, chili, casseroles

From the state of Hidalgo (and sometimes seen in Puebla), these lilac-and-black marked beans are probably a very near cousin to what we've grown as Rio Zape. Like Rio Zape, they have a luxurious pot liquor (bean broth) with hints of coffee and chocolate. San Franciscanos have a sturdier skin, making them more versatile and usable in salads and composed dishes as well.

You can use them in chilis, soups, salads and stews but we think the best way to enjoy them is plain, and pass around the salsas and garnishes like grilled onions, grilled cactus paddles, limes, Mexican oregano and fresh cheese.

Latin name: Phaseolus vulgaris

THE RANCHO GORDO-XOXOC PROJECT
These items are the results of our two companies working together 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.

This product includes a 5% "tariff" that will be donated to No More Deaths, a humanitarian aid group that provides water and other assistance to migrants and refugees along the US border. Rancho Gordo will be matching this amount as well. For more information, see our blog post.

Product of Mexico. Produced in Mexico under the supervision of the Rancho Gordo-Xoxoc Project.
