Expert Tips

Pinto beans are two-tone kidney-shaped beans widely used in Central and South American cooking. They turn pink when cooked and are the most popular beans used for refried beans.

Pinto beans are full of folic acid, a vitamin research shows to promote heart health and baby health.

Offer sour cream and fresh chopped cilantro to top the sitr-fry.
