I believe they were the Rio Zape beans.

These were delicious thank you! However my pinto beans took over 4 hours to finish. One reason could be that I used a stainless steel pot instead of cast iron.

Anyone tried to do these in the instant pot yet?

Was wondering how long they last in the fridge, and can you freeze them?

They will last for about a week in the fridge and you can freeze it for a couple months.
