Black Beans

I am not sure when it became trendy to start serving black beans in the place of pinto beans, but I sure do hate them. They're smaller, tougher, and to me less tasty. I guess they must have some environmental or health benefit, since the people of Austin seem to love them so much.

They were brought to my attention once again, because I ate at La Salsa. Overall the food was fine, but I don't think they even mentioned that their beans were black beans, instead of the good old pinto. They may have posted it somewhere on the menu board, but it certainly was not obvious.

What do you think of the black bean?
