Ojo de Cabra beans (organic)

Meaty  •  Velvety  •  Plump


These velvety smooth beans with their eye-catching dark stripes come from Northern Mexico - where flour tortillas, grilled meats, and fresh cheeses reign. We love their robust meaty flavor, full-bodied broth, and versatility. These plump beans are one of our top choices for recipes calling for pinto, but they also pair well with Mediterranean flavors (think: feta and greens). Harvested: Fall 2021

Frijoles de la olla

If you've never had frijoles de la olla, your life is about to be changed. We’ve experimented with enough variations to know that the ultimate Mexican-style brothy beans comes from a two-step process: 1) cook up a well-seasoned pot of beans, and 2) fold in a caramelized sofrito.

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.

Fantastic! made such a tasty bean dip

I barely needed to do anything after pureeing cooked beans with salt and olive oil and lime juice. I did add a couple of charred jalapenos, charred green onions, reconstituted ancho pepper, and cumin. I am ordering these again.

The best

Best beans! I have been wanting to get my hands on these since I tried them last summer. I slow cooked them with onion, garlic, a bay leaf and some stock and they were amazing and flavorful
