The big beans will blow your taste buds. Red or white kidney beans, cranberry (Roman), Lima and many others, are melting and fleshy, but they keep their crisp when we let them simmer gently in our recipes. They will be delicious in cassoulets, soups or recipes to cook a few hours.
Take a look at the chicken cranberry or red bean stew and chorizo that is in our heart stroke.
However, if you want to add small or medium beans to your chili or large beans in your salads it's ok, but adapted your cooking to get the tenderness of the bean for your recipe.
