HOW TO ORDER WHOLE PINTO BEANS IN SPANISH

Posted in Ethos by burritowizard on March 26, 2009

I’ve encountered a few places that offer refried beans, but also have whole pinto beans. If no one speaks English, you can order them in Spanish: “frijoles de la olla” literally meaning beans of the pot.

BLACK BEANS VS. PINTO BEANS

Posted in Ethos by burritowizard on February 16, 2009

Most people agree that black beans taste better, i.e. unseasoned most would choose black beans.  In burritos: if it’s a 7.5 and below black beans are better, if it’s greater than 7.5, then pinto beans.  The milder tasting pinto acts as a better compliment to the ingredients.  Particularly with complicated salsas black beans muddy the flavors and make it difficult to fully appreciate.
