black beans and ham

Leftovers are a fact of life, especially post-Holidays. Use up your leftover ham with a few pantry staples for a delicious and quick meal. Make it as spicy or mild as you like by adding more or less red pepper flakes.



  1. Heat oil over medium-high heat in a heavy bottomed pot. Add onions, peppers and garlic and cook until vegetables start to "sweat" or leach their juices.
  2. Add ham, chicken stock and bay leaf. Stir well.
  3. Add in beans and seasonings. Simmer for 20 minutes on low.
  4. Remove bay leaf and serve over hot cooked rice.
