Red kidney beans are one of many legumes in the "common beans" family, which are all believed to have derived from a common bean ancestor originating in Peru. Migrating Indian traders took them into South and Central America where their popularity grew. By the 15th century, these hearty beans were introduced to Europe by Spanish explorers returning home from their voyages to the Americas. From there, Spanish and Portuguese traders brought kidney beans into Africa and Asia. As common beans were a very cost-effective form of protein, they became quite popular in many cultures and remain a staple food around the world today.

Kidney beans are low in fat and a good source of fiber, iron and protein. When combined with whole grains, kidney beans provide high quality vegetarian protein.

Since these red beans hold their shape exceptionally well during cooking and readily absorb surrounding spices and flavors, they are a favorite bean to use in simmered dishes. Red kidney beans are used much like pinto beans and are especially good combined with other beans for a marinated bean salad or chili. Try our Red Kidney Beans in bean burgers, stews, or red beans and rice. See the back of our package for a terrific Mexicali Bean Salad recipe. Red kidney beans are simple to prepare and make a wonderful side dish or addition to your favorite recipes calling for beans.
