Ayocote blanco beans (organic)

Earthy  •  Velvety  •  Rustic 

 

These flavorful white beans are worthy of celebratory occasions in Mexico, commonly savored with pork and pickled jalapeños. We’re big fans there is something special about the large size, complex earthy flavor, and velvety smooth texture. These beans work equally well with Mediterranean flavors, just like their cousins the Corona and Gigante. Whatever the cuisine, they add body and creaminess to dishes where size matters salads, saucy dishes, and gratins.

 

Looking for heirloom and organic beans? You're in the right place. There are plenty of nuances when it comes to beans, and our beans are from recent harvests, packed with flavor and nutrition, and grown by climate-conscious family farms.

Plant protein: Boost your plant-based protein intake, naturally. One cup of cooked beans provides ~16 g of protein (varies by bean).

Sourcing notes

The state of Zacatecas, northwest of Mexico City, has a rich history of thriving nomadic tribes as old as the Aztecs, and is the original site for some of the world’s first beans. Today, thousands of experienced small-scale farmers are Mexico’s leading producers of guavas, chiles, nopales, and, of course, beans– benefiting from the sunny, semi-arid climate and rich, red soils.

We partnered with Armando Klein of Darmstadt Organics, who helped organize the farms in his community into a cooperative– so that they can benefit from shared resources and collectively innovate, like achieving organic certification and promoting crops that are important symbols of regional identity.

Perfection

Ayocote Blancos are one of my favorite beans of all time! Their large size and velvety texture is super satisfying to eat and they hold up really well to all sorts of cooking methods. My favorite preparation is in a saucy baked casserole of some sort—something about that extra time spent cooking in a hearty sauce with melty toasty cheese on top is just magic. You won't miss the meat OR the pasta with these guys, they're absolute perfection.
