Pinto beans are packed with essential nutrients, vitamins, and minerals. The most prominent of these nutrients are vitamin b6, magnesium, and folate. They are rich in fiber which is essential for supporting and maintaining a healthy digestive system. Pinto beans are also very high in antioxidants, which help defend against free radicals that cause cancer.

Pinto beans are packed with protein and carbohydrates to provide long-lasting energy. While pinto beans are high in healthy carbs, they are great for cardiovascular health as they reduce levels of bad carbs that cause heart disease. These hearty beans are great to add substance to a meal and make it more filling.
It is necessary to wash your pinto beans before using them. Soak pinto beans in cold water for 3-4 hours or overnight. Remove any small rocks that may have floated to the surface. Strain beans in a colander and add to a large bowl. Pick out any other debris at the bottom of the bowl. Repeat the process at least twice to ensure beans are clean.
