If you like pinto beans and corn bread, you will love Anasazi beans. Story goes they were cultivated by the Anasazi Indians (Anasazi = the old ones) in the 4 corners area and were discovered in a food storage cache that was several hundred years old. We discovered them probably 30 years ago; and were only able to get them in specialty food stores, at quite a high price I might add. They are available now in some food stores, and can be ordered online if you desire. Don't get me wrong; I have no interest in the company that sells them, but while I never cared too much for pinto beans, these beans are great. They don't hurt my stomach, cook up in about half the time, have just a slight sweet flavor and produce little, if any, gas. So...if you like pinto beans, I recommend Anasazi!
