This was delicious and very easy - we used drained canned tomatoes for a garnish because it's not fresh tomato season here, but the tomatoes, green onions and a dash of hot sauce kept everything lively and complemented the earthy taste of the beans and ham nicely.

This was delicious. I upped the amount of ham but kept everything else the same, and we wanted more, more, more! The flavor tastes as though it simmered all afternoon. I skipped the toppings, but they were not sorely missed. This went perfectly over rice. Served with cornbread muffins and a chopped salad. We will surely have it again!
