    connie427's Note:

    Pink or Pinto beans can be used and I cook with a ham bone or ham hocks whichever I have on had. Very tasty and the spice level can be adjusted according to the amount of jalapenos used. Easy and good!

      This was really good. I had a meaty ham bone and the only changes that I made was to increase the chicken broth to 8 cups. I used 1 lb of pink beans and 1 1/2 lb of great northern beans. I put in 3 jalapenos. I will add one more jalapeno next time. Love the heat and how the flavors blended. I did use 5 cloves of garlic. I only had 1/4 onion so I added a envelope of Lipton Onion Soup mix. Will make again when we have a ham bone left from our ham. Thanks for the recipe!

      This is, as ham and bean recipes should be, extremely easy to make. Had some leftover Great Northern White beans which I used. I did not have any jalapeno peppers (or, rather, the ones I did have had gone bad), so I used chipotle in adobo sauce. Minced one chipotle and added a spoonful of the sauce. All I can say is WOW! That was so good. The cumin adds a very nice note. Will definitely add this one to my recipe box.
