Skins came off pinto beans!

bungiefour | Jul 2, 201508:36 AM     3

This is the first time I have cooked pinto and black beans. I usually buy canned, but I'm cooking for 120 people. The skin came off the beans and so the beans have all these skins visible. It doesn't look as appetizing. Is this normal? Should I freeze these for my personal use, or go ahead and use them for a wedding reception/taco salad bar? Should I bag using these and opt to buy several cans, instead? I cooked 9 lbs of each! What would you do?
