Soup Beans And Cornbread


You northerners might right about now be thinking, what? But if you're a southerner, Soup beans and cornbread, has probably graced your dinner table more than once. With lots of blustery winter days still left {ugggggggh!}, I thought I'd share this favorite easy meal of mine with y'all.

It's a winner in my book for a couple of reasons, price is one. This is one budget friendly meal. It really can help to stretch your grocery money. And two, who doesn't love a big ole' bowl of warm soup on a cold winter's day??? It's a win-win kind of a meal. Here's the recipe I use...........



Soup Beans Ingredients 

1 lb. dry pinto beans
1 tsp. chili powder {more if you're feeling fiery}
salt to taste
At least 6 cups water
1 onion chopped
1/2 pound ham {bone in} 

Wash dried pinto beans and place in crock pot . Cover with cold water. Allow to sit in crock pot {in OFF position} all night. The next morning, drain beans and add 6 cups water {or more. You want all ingredients covered well with water} to crock pot along with seasonings, onions and ham. Stir well. Set that crockpot on low for 8 hours, and go on about your day as usual cause that crockpot is getting dinner all ready for you. Serve with your favorite cornbread, because beans without cornbread, well that's just like peanut butter without jelly.  And, for the love of all things southern, serve those beans with hot sauce y'all. I promise, this will warm you on the coldest of nights!



Now if you're a little wistful and dreaming of warmer days, you could choose to end your meal with Peach Cobbler and Ice Cream {my favorite recipe here}! I know it's only February, but a girl can dream, right?
