The Anasazi were cliff-dwelling natives that inhabited the Southwest over 1500 years ago. One of the few crops they cultivated and thrived on were these beautiful, nutritious beans. They require no presoaking and cook in about 2/3 the time of most other beans. They have a sweet full flavor and a rich mealy texture, perfect for any dish calling for beans. Anasazi Beans are not only delicious, but also a wonderful source of dietary fiber, protein, and iron.
