EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

Pinto beans are common in Mexican and Spanish cuisines. The beans, named after the Spanish word for paint, are pink with dark red streaks. Pinto beans are often used for refried beans and chili con carne.

If you like spicy food, use medium or hot salsa.

Serve this southwestern-style stew with plenty of warmed flour tortillas. Offer ice-cold lemonade or limeade to drink.
