Originating from Peru, spread by migrating tribes and cultivated 8000 years ago, these are commonly used in Latin American cuisine as often as corn. Shaped like a kidney these light red beans have a sweet flavour and light texture and are full of potassium, Vitamin B9, iron, phosphorus and fiber. Great in chili, vegetarian dishes, and pasta or bean salads.
