Anyone who loves the food of El Salvador will know the "frijol rojo de seda," or red silk bean. It looks somewhat like a small red kidney bean, but it has a silky, smooth texture and sweet flavor. These red beans are essential to central American cuisine.
This tasty bean is used in traditional dishes like Sopa de Frijoles, Sopa Salvadoreña, Frijoles Molidos and Platanos con Frijoles y crema. These frijoles rojos de seda are grown and dried in El Salvador. They require soaking overnight before cooking, follow the instructions on the package. Made by Mama Lycha.
