Versatile and Colorful Colorado Beans
Colorado produces a wide range of bean varieties including pinto, light red kidney and black, and the state ranks eighth nationally in dry bean production. Beans are low in fat, high in fiber, rich in antioxidants and a good source of protein. Look for Colorado beans at your local grocery store or at restaurants across the state. Each month the Colorado Department of Agriculture features a different commodity to highlight the variety and quality of products grown in the state.
