 Dark Red Kidney Beans 

The kidney bean with its dark reddish-brown skin is named for its visual resemblance to a kidney. The kidney bean is also known as the red bean, although this usage can cause confusion with other red beans. Kidney beans are a part of the cuisine of North India. These gorgeous and versatile beans are often used in chili, refried beans, soups, and salads.
