More or less red kidney beans and pinto beans are same. The difference is in the way they are called in different regions. Another difference is in their color. Red beans, as the name suggests, are bright red in color, while pinto beans are light brown in color. Pinto beans, however, change color to pinkish-brown upon cooking. They are almost of the same size, hence, can be interchanged if need be.
