Ham and Beans recipe

It’s cold here today. Lots of ice that is turning to wet slush. It’s the perfect day for something to warm your bones! This can do it!

I love soups because they can be super fast and easy to make!

Ingredients:

Ham (I used just a slice ham hock .. you certainly can start w a hambone but this is a fast and simple recipe!)

Onion

Carrots

Cooked Pinto beans (I used what I had canned, northern beans are fine too)

Chicken broth

Combine in a cast iron pot.. I didn’t add any seasoning because my pinto beans are already salted. Bring to a simmer /steady boil until carrots are cooked.

Garnish with fresh parsley or cilantro (I prefer cilantro! I used what I had growing on the window sill)

Goes great w jiffy cornbread!
