I like a number of beans, but guess if I had to pick a favorite it would be pinto.

Apart from vanilla because, of course, thats a given I am a big fan of kidney beans, chick peas (great in soups like minestrone or a chickpea and leek soup, and also hummous *drool*).

I also really enjoy the ham-like flavour of borlotti beans, especially in a nice risotto or just hot on slices of lightly toasted italian loaf drizzled with olive oil and sprinkled with parmesan.

again, it depends on what I'm using it for. If I want something spicy, it's pinto, kidney, and black beans. If I'm in the mood for something with a lot of flavor, and sweet, it's navy beans for hacked beans. On a salad, it has to be chick peas and kidney beans.

And then we get into the deliscous cooked beans used either flavored, or unadorned such as wax beans, green beans, etc.

And in three bean salad, I love kidney beans, chik peas (garbonzo beans), and grren beans cooked until they have jsut a hint of crispness left in them.

Pork and beans were almost a staple of my youth. but I love butter beans equally well.

I had an Itallian bean, similar in shape and color to pinto beans. I didn't care for them at all. But I can't remember the name. And I've never had fava beans, not even with a liver (just a joke, only a joke).

Refried beans! I love Mexican foods. Actually, if they are prepared right, I like any kind of bean.

favorite bean?

Out of curiosity, why is a vanilla bean called a bean? Is it related botanically to a legume? Or is it NOT a bean and something else entirely and some bird brain decided to name it a vanilla bean??????! :roll:

Vanilla beans are seed pods in the orchid family. This will give you a lot of information about them: http://www.vanilla.com/html/facts-beans.html

My fav beans are human beans - never boring & talk back. Wouldn't like to eat 'em tho', a bit tough.
