    i like the look of cooked black beans.. when cooked fully, what do they taste like? I think they'd taste like pintos, but do they????

    Personally, cooked with the same seasonings, I can't taste much of a difference between varieties of beans. I think they all taste more-or-less the same.

    There are textural and flavor differences in different dried beans. Some are nuttier tasting, some firmer, some creamier, some softer, some meatier. Pintos and black/turtle beans are both meaty types, but pintos are creamier than turtle beans, which have a bit more tooth resistance. There's a flavor-matching chart at the following site which could be very helpful, even if you aren't cooking vegan.

    A note on the recipe link posted in the original post: I would not bother with the cornstarch as thickener, it will break down if overcooked or reheated. Puree or mash a potion of the beans in the soup. The released starch will thicken it nicely with no added calories.

    This page also has suggested uses for specific varieties of beans.
