I decided to make this yummy Pinto Bean dip since today we celebrated Cinco De Mayo, and it is quick and easy to prepare if you are using canned pinto beans. However, you can sort and soak dried pinto beans in cold water overnight, then drain and boil in water for about 45 minutes to 1 hour until tender the following day.

Vegan Pinto Bean dip is packed with protein and fiber and it is a favorite dip for parties, Other Cinco De Mayo dishes you might want to try are Black Bean Burritos, Vegan Quesadillas, and Mexican Quinoa Casserole.
