We have prepared some delicious dinner ideas for you to impress your friends and family including an appetizer, entree and dessert. Put on your bibs and dig in!

Appetizer:

Spicy Greek and Indian Style Pinto Bean Dip

If you like to try new things, this pinto bean dip is for you. Be aware though, it’s not for the faint of heart. It’s very spicy but tasty as an appetizer (with pita or light tortilla chips) or on a wrap for a light lunch. The interesting combination of spices and flavors is perfect and easy for any occasion. It’ll add a creamy, texturized kick to your pre-meal munches.

Entree:

Avocado and Pinto Bean Enchiladas

This dish not only tastes great, but looks great as well. The mouth watering enchiladas have cashews, avocados and of course you’ll need a jar of Randall Beans pinto beans. And you’ll definitely need to raid your spice cabinet to create the complex spice mixture. The cashews’ crunchy texture added to mashed avocados, beans and a variety of spices gives an exciting new twist to the classic enchilada.  Everyone will be grabbing for seconds.

Dessert:

Pinto Bean Pie

To top off the meal, whip up this pinto bean pie. It’s a classic, old recipe that will take you back to grandma’s kitchen. It’s healthy, and your family will enjoy it too. Just slip it in the oven right before you sit down to eat, and the smell is enough to make you want to save room. A little coconut on top gives a rich, nutty flavor, while a last-minute sprinkling of nutmeg and cinnamon will have the whole house smelling like the holidays. Embrace beans for dessert!
