Ingredients

    • 1 pound of pinto or pink beans (nutrition info calculated with pinto)
    • Leftover ham (hamhock or bacon with also do) - calculated with a 14 oz ham steak that was cubed, but reduce for lower calories and fat
    • 6 cups of water
    • 2 tbsp of garlic
    • ½ cup of chopped onion
    • 1 6-oz. can of tomato paste
    • 2 tsp chipotle chili powder (I use a very spice chili powder, so it makes this dish HOT!)
    • 2½ tbsp brown sugar
    • ½ tsp cumin
    • ½ tsp cinnamon
    • Salt to taste

Directions

1. Soak cleaned & washed beans overnight in enough water to cover. Drain and rinse.

2. In a large pot, boil beans, meat, and water for ~1 hour until beans are almost tender.

3. Add remaining ingredients and stir well. Bring back to boil, then reduce heat and simmer for another 2 hours at least.

Alternatively, place into slowcooker on low for at least 10 hours or bake at 325°F for 1-2 hours (if beans are tender first).
