Eye of the goat beans
Eye Of The Goat is an heirloom runner type bean (Phaseolus coccineus) related to Scarlet runner beans. They are from a perennial plant, with its pod growing 6 to 12 inches long providing 6 to 10 beans.
While they may look similar to black-eyed peas, our Eye of the Goat Beans have a pinto-like texture when cooked - meaning they pair well with bold flavors like this spicy batch of frijoles charros. Bacon adds a richness and smokiness, while jalapeño peppers keep things bright and lively.
