**Anasazi beans** are small kidney shaped purple and white beans in the same family as pinto beans. They have a mild, sweet flavor which pairs with a mealy texture. This attractive purple-red and white bean cooks in about 2/3 the time of an ordinary pinto bean. Compared to other beans, it contains only 25% of the specific complex carbohydrates sometimes responsible for gastric distress associated with dry beans- so, less gas. One serving of anasazi bean meets more than 25 percent of your daily value for fiber.
