Can I substitute kidney in a bean recipe that calls for pinto beans?
Gonna make beans, dont want to get out in the snow, and we have a bag of kidney beans. I don't even know why. I've never cooked kidney beans before.

Thanks

They use them all the time in New Orleans for red beans and rice. Use them and save yourself a trip. Take the lid off after they're done an boil them down to thicken the juice.

They are on.

Last minute decision so I didn't soak. That just means it'll take longer right?

pretty much. helps soften the skin as well. just don't put in salt until the end or that'll toughen up the skin even more.

I heard that too. Also heard to add a little baking soda to soften the skins. I discount both ideas. If I soak beans, I soak in salt water then discard the liquid and cook in fresh water which I will immediately season.

Salt is your friend.

To be honest, this recipe is way better than normal. Not sure if it's the kidneys or the fact that I used the leftover smoked Christmas ham instead of bacon.
