At first bite, I thought the sweetness had taken over, BUT after a few more bites, my taste buds got used to it, and I loved it! I made a pico with tomatoes, onion, jalapeno, cilantro, and lime juice to top it with and it was perfect. Everyone love it!
Fabulous recipe! I'm not a big pinto beans fan - but these taste absolutely fabulous! I will definitely be making these frequently!
Awesome pinto beans. Loved the maple syrup in this. I cut back on the chili powder a little, left out the sugar and added a jalapeno pepper chopped. We loved this. Thanks
I made this recipe without the sugar or syrup and to my taste this made a perfect pot of beans. They were well cooked and tender without becoming mushy, The ham, and seasonings were just right. I added a bit more water toward the end because I like to crumble the cornbread into the beans and let it soak in the juice. Thanks GW for a very enjoyable dinner.
I have been looking for this recipe for years. My mother used to make it, but lost the cookbook it was in.
Yummy...My family loves this recipe...great flavor. Thank you for sharing.
