trying a new bean today

I stumbled upon a bean that is not my usual in, of all places, the 99 cents only store.
It is yellow in color and about the same size and shape as a pinto bean.
It is called mayocoba.
Have you ever cooked with it?
I am doing a quick soak and will let it cook for the day.
According to NutrionPedia this Peruvian bean but it doesn't give me anything more than that.
I think I will cook it the way I cook pinto beans with sofrito and adobo and lots of garlic.
Will post tonight or tomorrow...
