Beans

  • The food list says beans, but limits them to kidney or black.  Why not pinto?  Same nutritional content.

  • Hi BigBenny

    You can eat pinto beans. This is a recipe that BFL has posted under Turkey Transformations:

    Turkey Rice and Bean Burrito

    When you think of the holidays, you may not automatically think of a burrito. Well, think again. Pinto beans and red bell pepper provide plenty of fiber and minerals. If you’re finally getting tired of leftovers, this meal may be just the thing to get you out of that rut.

    Serves 4

         1 teaspoon olive oil

         1 cup green onion; chopped

         1 medium red bell pepper; seeded, chopped

         8 ounces green chilis, canned (usually 2 cans)

         1 can (15 ounces) pinto beans; drained

         1 box (6.8 ounces) Spanish rice mix

         16 ounces leftover turkey; diced

         4 medium flour tortillas

         4 slices non-fat cheddar cheese

    We have the rest of our lives to perfect this....do your best and forget the rest!
