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).

Nutritious for all human beans

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

Lots of fiber: Beans have an impressive 12-20 grams of fiber per cup (varies by bean). Fiber helps keep your cholesterol levels at bay and your digestion in check ;)

Sustained energy: The complex carbs in beans keep your blood sugar levels steady, helping you feel energized for hours.

Key nutrients: High in iron, zinc, folate, potassium, magnesium, and antioxidants (oh my!), beans have everything you need to feel healthy and happy daily.

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.
