Ayocote morado beans (organic)

Meaty  •  Velvety  •  Sturdy 

 

These majestic purple beans have deep roots in Oaxaca, traditionally served with smoky mole, and as a filling in masa street snacks. Complex and meaty, with a luxurious creamy yet firm texture, these beans make any meal special. Pair with similarly bold and assertive flavors dried chiles, earthy greens, and tangy cheese. We especially love them in dishes featuring their dark, flavorful broth.

Chipotle baked beans with cilantro pesto

This recipe was just made for the plump, sturdy, and creamy nature of our Ayocote Morado beans. These large beans really shine when bathed in the smoky chipotle-tomato sauce and topped with bright cilantro pesto.

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.

Incredible flavor !

Alll of the beans I have tried have been so flavorful ! and the descriptions you have given hold true. There is a great variety from the white beans to the Ayocote Morado beans are rich and bold and complex just as you describe them. Even after all the cooking, slow style of several hours.
Thank you for a special product. And for your efforts for partnering with the organic growers like Dormstadt Organics!!!

Warming and full flavored.

I cooked these with red onions, garlic, mexican marjoram and bay leaf. They were fantastic as is and then the most flavorful base for taco Tuesday with wilted spinach, smoked pepper shrimp and pickled onions.
Also great as the beans in "Sheet pan Tacos with Crispy Brussel Sprouts" from "Mostly Plants" by the Pollen Family. (page 122)
