Get Creative with your Legumes Pacific Foods

Pacific’s new beans aren’t just good for a tasty 7 layer dip. These beloved little beans are great to keep in the pantry because there’s something for everyone. Packed with protein, they’re great in everything from tacos and burritos, to soups, dips and side dishes. We slow cook them for hours so they’re full of rich, natural flavor. There’s nothing these can-do legumes can’t do.

Add a punch of vegan protein to your soup with some of the Organic Refried Black Beans. Go south of the border with this twist on your standard Tortilla Soup. It means dinner in minutes, and it allows you to get really creative with these flexible ingredients. Toss in your favorite veggies and top with chips, fresh herbs or sour cream. Or, spread some of the deliciousness on a taco-themed pizza. Follow this recipe for more guidance on acustomizable weeknight meal.

Baked Beans are too easily heated and served. We’re branching out from just using our new Organic Baked Beans as a side to hot dogs, hamburgers, corn on the cob and other classic BBQ dishes. Back in May we asked our Twitter fans to tell us some favorite ways to have Baked Beans, and we were blown away by how creative you can get with these little legumes. Here are a few of the tips we heard, and we can’t wait to get started:

  • Add Swiss chard and kale
  • Puree your Baked Beans for a twist on hummus, fava bean dip or baba ganoush
  • Toss with rice and roasted veggies for some extra protein
  • Mash and make sweet rolls
  • Add them to soups, salads
  • Layer on tostadas and top with avocado
  • Add bacon to the Organic Baked Beans with Pork and serve with yellow rice

Any other genius ideas to add? Lay ‘em on us. We can’t wait to conjure up some more exciting recipes!
