Creamiest beans are _____? Have you an experience to share?

awhile ago i did a cook-off comparison of many rancho gordo and other beans, and, much to my surprise, my creamiest beans were pinto beans. Any one else concur?

In terms of creaminess, I have had good results with cranberry beans as well as pinto beans; although I've had to cook the cranberry beans just a tad longer than the pinto beans.

Le bec fin - I had same experience with pinto beans. Seem to remember flageolet similar, but they are hardered to get and haven't made them in a long time.

Well, they weren't rancho gordo so that could be why, but I had a hell of a time last time I made pinto beans! They stayed resolutely "al dente". I think they must have been very old. Personally I'm a fan of kidney beans. How did you make your winning pinto beans?

steph, after seeing the health benefits of beans over near-worthless potatoes and rice, i started making sure i considered beans in most dishes i made, from all things stewy and soup[including Borscht], to stuffed calamari and moussaka.....

Unfortunately I have never had a opportunity to enjoy any of the Rancho Gordo dried beans, but even with the most basic of grocery store canned beans, I have found that the pinto beans are surprisingly more creamy than say kidney or navy beans.
