Dove Creek, Colorado is the Pinto Bean Capital of the World.  Locals don’t claim to grow more pinto beans than any other town - they just believe their beans are the best. 

The biggest landmark near the town is an enormous bean elevator that can be seen from miles around.

Dove Creek is also home to Adobe Milling, the producers of Anasazi Beans.  Though Anasazi Beans are closely related to pintos, they are a different kind of bean and are supposed to be extra tasty.  I’ll cook some this week and let you know.

This is an entry for The American Guide, a really interesting project you should look at if you haven’t yet.
