Eye of the Goat "Ojo de la Cabra"
Eye of the Goat Bean
Ojo de la Cabra
You gotta love a bean with this name! Goat's eyes come from the unique coloration on the skin and these are a favorite from Baja California in Mexico. We use this in our chili because the skin stays in tact but the bite is soft like a re-fried with Pinto beans. Really tasty.
A medium size bean with great flavor and looks great too. We like it with some diced tomatoes - heirloom, of course - onion, garlic and a little vegetable or chicken stock. Excellent for Hummus or making Re-fried Beans for a dip.
Here's looking at you, kid...!
