Anasazi Bean - 1,75 lbs.


Anasazi (Phaseolus Vulgaris) are a small legume related to the Kidney Bean (Phaseolus Vulgaris). These beans are about 1/2 inch long with a dappled burgundy and cream color. When cooked the color fades to form dark pink. The Anasazi has a mild flavor and firm texture. Cultivation of this bean can be traced back to the Anasazi Indians which lived in the Southwestern region of America. Anasazi are one of the few cultivated crops grown by native Americans. The bean's name comes from the cliff-dwelling Anasazi Tribes of the four corners area (where Colorado, Utah, Arizona & New Mexico come together). The name comes from the Navajo word meaning ancient ones. The patterns on the beans are similar to the markings on Jersey cows.

Suggested Use:
Anasazi beans are a hearty addition to casseroles and soups. The Anasazi can replace pinto beans in any recipe. Anasazi beans are great when seasoned with spicy chiles.

Other Names:

Aztec Bean, Cave Bean, New Mexico Appaloosa, and Jacons Cattle
