Pink bean, pinquito bean is an heirloom variety. It is smaller and not as square as the pinto and less uniform in size and colour. It resembles the shape of the small red bean and can be used interchangeably with it. The pink bean has a sweet, rich, meaty flavour with a slight mealy textrue, quite similar to the pinto bean.

The only place I've seen pinquito beans is when I lived in Lompoc and we had what is now called "Santa Maria Barbecue". I visited friends there a few years ago, and asked what in the heck it was. Grilled tri-tips and the beans described above. Oh, what we used to have at least once a month! As the word insinuates, they are like pintos, only smaller. They are not readily available in much of the country (as the cut tri-tips are not).

Raine, this recipe sounds so good. I am assuming that the beans have been soaked first?

I don't soak my beans. To me, it seems to remove some of the flavor.
