tried some different beans

... called Anasazi beans. ("Anasazi" is the name given to prehistoric Puebloan Indians who lived in the 4-Corners area. Archaeological finds of stored beans show that this same kind of beans has been grown in SW Colorado for 1,500 years.)




They're similar to pintos except for a mealier texture and a sweeter taste. They cook in 2-3 hrs without soaking. And the compounds that cause flatulence are present in much smaller amounts.

I cooked a batch with smoked ham hocks, onion, garlic, salt and pepper. They're good, worth keeping. Not much like pintos, but that's kinda what they look like cooked. The distinctive coloring pretty much blends together. Next time I'll kick the recipe up with some peppers. Link.

They are attractive but I like a bean with a lot of gas.

What the hell good is a bean if it doesn't make you fart?

I've cooked them too many times to remember. They are my bean of preference.

That said, thanks for letting the secret out

I read an article recently that said the more beans you eat, the more your body will build up an immunity to farting. I told that to my wife but warned her the testing stage might be tough for her!

Well as usual I'm forced to agree with ya. Thats why Tex Mex folks who eat beans for every meal since they was weaned dont have as much fun with flatluence as them who are unaccoustomed to dealing with them very often. We had a real smart dentist on another list named Kit Anderson who did some extensive research on the topic. According to Kit it all has to do with certain partly indigestible simple sugars called Oligosaccharides. If you eat beans often enough it teaches your body to digest em. Plug his name into Google sometime along with the word "beans." Bet you will get a few hits...bunch of recipes etc.
