I havn't been canning for very long; cheese, fruits and meat mostly. My MIL showed me how to do kidney and pinto beans about eight or nine months ago. I was wondering if you could can a mix of both beans together, as long as the measurements stay accordingly. I make Taco soup and I use a little of each kind of bean, I though if I could can a mix that would make it easier to throw the soup together, and not waste the rest of the kidney, with the rest of the pinto I make refried beans. Any way If I could get some help I would be grateful!! Thanks!
