When I first heard about these black beans, I too was skeptical and had to do my research. So, I went to all the local stores looking for a can of these keto beans. I finally found a single can for about three dollars at a health food store in my area.

As a healthy low carb diet enthusiast, I had to try this high protein, low carb, no sodium shelf stable canned good. Well, these keto mexican beans that I made are no fake. They are made with the same low carb beans mentioned. So, I ended up ordering a case of these beans online for around two dollars per can (shipping cost not included).
