Tiger Eye Bean
Originally from Chile or Argentina these beans have a wonderfully rich flavor and smooth texture. The skins of the Tiger Eye Bean is so tender they almost disappear when cooked. They are great for chili or re-fried beans and can also be used as fresh shell beans.
We use Tiger Eye in one of our chili formulations and it is a lovely bean to cook with.
Great flavor, wonderful coloring, and breaks down to a soft, almost re-fried-like paste if you want it to. We like whole beans in our chili, but putting them in a blender and adding tomatoes, onion, garlic and/or cilantro creates a flavorful dip for bread and veggie chips even the kids will eat!
