An heirloom passed down for generations in rural Hidalgo, Mexico, this small, compact bean produces a rich, flavorful broth.
Suggestions: Pot beans, casseroles, salads, soups, refried beans, chili
In Mexico, a rebozo is a shawl, often worn with panache by Mexico's lovelier residents. Perhaps if you were totally drunk you might think these pretty beans resemble a shawl, but who knows? Who cares? It's fun to say the word rebozo and it's more fun to eat these delicious beans. They have a rich bean broth and can be used in place of any traditional Mexican bean in recipes, especially refried beans.
Enjoy these beans on their own, perhaps served with some chopped onion and a little cheese. They'd also be good for chilis, stews, and refried beans.
Latin name: Phaseolus vulgaris
