Pinto beans have no specific name in Filipino, so finding them in your nearest market can be a challenge. But they do have very distinct features: they are big and brown with splashes of reddish stripes. When cooked, the reddish splashes disappear, and the beans turn into a pinkish color. Pinto beans are virtually fat-free, an excellent source molybdenum, folate, and manganese. Not only that, they are also high in vitamin B1, phosphorus, iron, potassium, and cooper.
