This free pinquito bean recipe resource is provided through the generosity of several businesses and organizations in California’s Santa Maria Valley. The people behind are foodies who share a common affinity for our local food culture – Santa Maria Style Barbecue.

Being the only place in the world that pinquito beans are commercially grown and the fact that the little legumes are an essential component of Santa Maria Style Barbecue, we thought it would be useful to encourage others to incorporate both traditional and innovative pinquito bean recipes into their diets.
