I was born and raised in the deep south. I don't think a week went by without eating it at least twice or more in some fashion. LOL we had white beans and rice with fried catfish and cooked greens every Friday. I don't remember anyone having a constipation issue though... usually the opposite... Perhaps our systems are just used to it?

I agree that it's what you're used too. In our Deep South neck of the woods, it's red beans and rice on Monday since that was typically "wash day". So, across the Gulf Coast you will see Monday's lunch special will be Red beans & rice.
Now in GA, we see a lot of field peas or purple hull peas which I'm not used to. So I would say, different regions have different "bean" preferences.

In south jersey, I grew up on baby limas and navy beans. In North Carolina it was butter beans. Here in arkansas it's pinto (brown beans) or red kidney beans (chili). My fave is navy beans. And black eyed peas. And kidney beans.
The only bean I've encountered that I don't like the taste, is favas. Mexican yellow beans tear me up. I should try them again. Our digestive systems change--what was tolerated may not be later, and what was not tolerated may be later, or with other ingredients to mellow effects.
P!

Yep. Grew up on Navy beans and ham, and pork and beans. Since marrying someone from the Southwest, it's frequently refried beans and Spanish/Mexican rice. Tonight, it's Red beans and Rice with Andouille for dinner.

Which ultimately is the answer....store what's best for you.
We store a lot of pintos because it's one of the ones we like best.
Have a friend who found a great deal on yellow beans...bought a whole bunch, having never tried them. My guess is they may have some gastro upset with an unfamiliar bean.

I got a hankering for pinto beans and rice the other day. put the beans in the slow cooker and in three hours added the rice. And then I got sidetracked....

Happen to walk through my kitchen 4 hours later. All the moisture was gone, it had pushed the lid off the slow cooker ( thankfully it fell on the counter and not the floor) If I could have gotten this brick of rice & beans out in one piece I could have used it for a corner stone on a small log cabin.

I am thankful my slowcooker survived.
