White Kidney Bean

Kidney beans have been a standby for generations. Whether the light red variety or the white variety, their size make them a wonderful addition to nearly any dish. Their flavor is full, their texture is soft, and, of course, chili wouldn’t be chili without Kidney Beans. The name of the Kidney Bean is derived from its shape. Though the thicker skins of Kidneys may require increased cooking time, they retain a wonderful shape even when cooked in dishes that require a long-simmering time. Perhaps most popular in chili con carne and red beans and rice, Kidney Beans can always be found in a variety of dishes including soups, salads, sandwiches, and dip.
