Pinto Beans and Ham

Last winter I found this recipe and have cooked several times.  The last time I made it, both boys gave it a thumbs up.  I enjoy this recipe because the recipe makes a lot so it stretches a buck and it is made in the crockpot.

Stars of the recipe:

  • bag of dried pinto beans

  • 1/2 lb. of ham chopped

  • small onion chopped

  • water


  1. Soak the pinto beans over night.  Make sure you put them in a big bowl and cover them with water.

  2. In the morning, drain the beans.  Get rid of any debris which could have gotten in the bag.

  3. Place the beans, ham, and onion in the crockpot. 

  4. Put water in the crockpot so it's over the beans, ham, and onion.  Season with salt and pepper.

  5. Cook on low for 8 to 10 hours.

  6. Serve over rice or with cornbread.
