Also called “New Mexico Cave Beans,” these small heirloom beans were cultivated by The Anasazi Indians who lived in the four corners area (now Colorado, Utah, Arizona, and New Mexico) dating back to 130 A.D.
Packed with protein and fiber, Anasazi’s are also rich in potassium, iron, and folate. They’re also known to be easy on the digestive system.
