Found: pinto beans!

If Cinco de Mayo got you craving Mexican food, we've got good news for you. One of our Lyon Eats contributors has found pinto beans - in two places! The French name for them here is haricots cocos rouges, haricots cocos roses or haricots pintos.

Canned Pinto Beans 800g for 1,90€ at TOPKAPI Imp.-Exp. Epicerie Orientale, 17 Rue Voltaire, 69003, which is at Place Guichard. According to D., "This place is like a mini Bahadourian."
The last time I was at this store they didn't carry them anymore, however you can now get canned pinto beans at Bahadourian at it's location in the 3rd arrondissement.

You can also get them dry at Bahadourian (above) for 2,95€/kilo, or probably cheaper at some of the Indian or African stores at the Guillotière.

Thanks, D.!

Ha! In my entire two years in Lyon I could never find pinto beans. I'm amazed!
