There are anastazi, pinto, lima, great northern, navy (pea), kidney, black, white, and fava beans among others. My favorite is the pinto, which is usually used in refried beans, too. I've eaten them all my life, and if the old saying you are what you eat is true, I'm a pinto bean.

I'm with you, Ann. I'll even substitute them for red kidney beans in red beans and rice. I love them refried on tortillas, too.

I LOVE baked beans and often lament their diappearance from our culture. Made with Jacob's Cattle or pea beans, there's nothing like them on earth.
Having said that, I love all beans, even human beans!

I make baked beans for most holidays, but I use the canned pork and beans as a start, adding dark brown sugar, onions, garlic, bacon, peppers, and lots of BBQ sauce. I love them!

favorite bean has got to be the lima or a good butter bean- baked slow and low- with pork added ( sometimes chops,sometimes not) YUM!
Pinto is also a good all round bean that stands up to almost all kinds of cooking and all kinds of additives-

I'm a "beanie" too...they're delicious! I guess if I had to pick a fave, I'd say cannellini (Great Northern) beans. I love these little white beans cooked in the Tuscan style with olive oil, garlic, sage and peppercorns. Also, the addition of pancetta is great too. Makes an awesome bean soup too. Cooked cannellini beans poured onto a freshly-made piece of garlic bread, then good olive oil poured over it. Oh man is that good.

Navy or white beans, with lots of ham hocks.

I do also eat cold pork and beans out of the can. Scoop 'em out with Fritos.

Yummy!
I like the lima or butterbeans combined with ham, too. They're a great variation when I feel like a change.
Yeppers, pintos are the most versatile bean, in my opinion.

Uh oh! Cannellini, huh? That does sound good. I'll have to look into them. I have a Sicilian Friend who does amazing things with vegetables. He used to have a bar with a kitchen out back. You never knew what incredible dishes he'd cook up and share.

Having been a biker, horseman, and sportsman I will confess to indulging in many a cold can of pork and beans straight from the saddlebags. Beanie Weenies have tasted pretty good at times, too. An old P-38 GI Folding Pocket Can Opener is usually on my keychain, though I have sawed open more than a few cans with my Buck knife. They have those with the pull tab now. I'll have to pick up more.

My all time favorite is speckled butter beans, though I haven't met a bean or pea I don't like.

Depends on what you are serving lol

Pinto beans with fried potatoes, butter peas with ham, purple hull crowder peas with anything, white acre peas with smoked turkey....you get the drift.

You serve a meat and bean/pea and I'm there. Heck, you don't even have to give me meat if you'd serve a fresh tomato slice on the side.

I recall reading an article by a nutritionist discussing the balance of proteins and carbohydrates our bodies need. Beans were one of the foods mentioned that was a perfect combination with many carbohydrates like rice and potatos. I think we like them because they are so good for us.

I will take canned beans and doctor them up with the right ingredients. I will do that when I am lazy.
I am a Frankanbeans monster. I try to use soft cheap dogs for the Beenie-Weenie texture, but I think that I need to go to those potted canned sausages.

I love lima beans and I too bemoan their disappearence from today's menus.
As it is, I enjoy many beans in many styles from many nations. Are there any bean dishes in Asian cooking, beyond red bean paste?

Mark, I can't recall ever using canned weenies in beans, but I've added the store bought ones many times when the kids were at home. They never seemed to complain.

Hoo! Many's the time I added fresh okra to a pot, but it was usually to a pot of of black eyed peas. I like it in peas or gumbo just shy of getting slimey, but can eat a big bowl of it boiled over cornbread. A note, I usually fry my okra in oil a few minutes before adding it to gumbo. This could be done for beans, too, if anyone objects to its slimy properties.

I really like true Boston baked Beans, with that bread made in a can. I can't remember the name of the bread.....maybe Boston Brown Bread or something like that. Durgin Park in Boston makes a baked bean to die for.

A pot of Cowboy Beans with a few flour tortillas, though and I'm in heaven! Of course a few Beano tablets before indulging is a must for me!!!....LOL!

Marrow beans are my favorite bean variety, especially for bean soup. They're getting harder to find every year though.

I make a lot of dishes with dried beans, including ones baked in a sauce with nutmeg, cinnamon and allspice that my grandmother called "Farm Boy Beans" because it was the family recipe of an old boyfriend.

For canned prepared beans, Bush with onions is my choice. I remember first tasting Bush brand beans in Florida and thought they were great compared to Campbell's, which was the dominant brand in PA at the time. I wrote to the company to ask if and when they were expanding into the Northeast (within 2 years was their answer) and I was delighted when they did.

The Ritz BBQ in Allentown PA makes the best "from scratch" baked beans. You can see them in this picture from a visit there.

Along with red beans & red bean paste I've seen the black beans.

Red beans seem to be in the "sweet" dessert type dishes while black beans I've only seen in the savory entree dishes.

Never met a bean I didn't like, but my bean treat would be fresh shell beans cooked and finished with some butter, or in a succotash mixed with fresh corn off the cob finished with butter and milk. One of those things you can only get for few weeks each year.

All beans except Kidney, Lima, and Butterbeans.

Especially love good Baked Beans and Navy/Great Northern beans slow-cooked with ham hocks and served with HOT buttered cornbread (no sugar in the cornbread, please )

Love spicy pintos (like Ranch-Style) ON-THE-SIDE with my chili . .. but NEVER IN the chili . . . that's a hangin' offense!

Oh, and I DESPISE Lentils (but they're peas, aren't they?).

Oh, I remember making a bread like that with the kids. It was pretty much fool proof. We'd smear it with butter and drink lots of milk with it. We'd also make home made apple butter to eat with it. I'll see if I can find the recipe or a similar one. I love flour tortillas, too, especially home made.

Hey, sneetch, how do you cook lentils?

Since you like them, maybe I did something wrong in my past preparations.

Have you got a recipe or two that you could share?

OK. My favorite is of course White Acre peas. Sometimes beans ain't really BEANS (green 'beans' for example). Even if U have snaps, them ain't really "beans". Other than my White Acres, the other members of the crowder pea family are my second best choice. Other than that, I pretty much like them all, even Garbanzos.

If you have leftover black-eye peas,pinto or red kidney beans you can make sausage patties.Drain and mash them.Add egg,a little flour,sage and crushed red pepper flakes.Make patties and fry in bacon grease.Serve with grits and eggs.

I'd have sure helped you eat them, Pard. My own kids and step-kids always encouraged my efforts, even to helping make tons of boudin. Most of them could eat a pound of our product for breakfast and another pound when they got home from school. None of them grew up puny, not even the little girl babies.
