    GrandmaG's Note:

    This recipe started out on FaceBook in our recipe swap group posted by member Vicky. Originally this recipe called for Kidney beans and Hamburger meat which I replaced the kidney beans with Pinto Beans, and used ham instead of Hamburger meat, (adding the ham instead of hamburger was by mistake). I was trying to remember the ingredients by heart. I put this pot of beans on cooking this morning while my neighbors were over helping me get things arranged in the house for the big Super Bowl Game tomorrow. I managed to set aside a bowl to take to work with me next week, thank goodness I did because the next time I saw the pot one of my neighbors was mopping the inside of the pot with a slice of bread.....all the beans were gone!

      Great recipe! I generally leave out the ham as the sausage is porky enough for me. I am well fueled to share some gas with the office staff the next day.....

      This made the best pot of beans I've tried lately. Different and delicious! I will make these again & they would be a terrific offering at any potluck. I prepared the recipe in a crockpot so after adding all ingredients just covered with water. I used fresh garlic, 2 ~19 oz cans of diced tomatoes, and hot smoked sausage. I also didn't add the salt as I try to reduce it wherever I can. Served with Double Apple Corn Muffins. Thank you for sharing the recipe! :-)
