My sister, Donna, came up with this recipe after looking over all our left-overs. It was an instant hit with our family. It was so good and easy, I thought I would share it here. It was served with another of her recipes, Savory Jalapeno French Toast, and corn-on-the cob. I hope y'all enjoy it!

This is an awesome dish for leftover ham. I added rotel tomatoes and cumin at the beginning and served it over rice! Yum!

This was a great way to use leftover roasted ham. I added 1 can of chili style diced tomatoes and a little cumin for a mexican flavor and moisture. Served over rice for a quick meal.
