My kids love red bean filling because they have been eating it in rice balls, mochi and moon cakes since they were little. I think it may be an acquired taste. This is a fairly simple recipe for making mochi with red bean filling. You can also just make the dough part and eat the mochi plain.
I like to use Eden brand beans because they are readily available at my local grocery. For some reason they call these "Aduki Beans" which looks like a typo to me. I have also seen these beans called azuki beans. Whatever. I'm pretty sure we are all talking about the same beans!
