Ham n Beans

I haven't blogged in a while due to obtaining a fabulous new job that keeps me away from a computer. Even now I am using Blogger on my Android during a short break I have. Sorry! But I will be back now with some new fall recipes!

My fiance's grandparents gave us a few items from the grocery store to help out with our recent, particularly trying, financial gap (due to new job).  We received some spaghetti squash, a ham steak, and a few snack items. I never usually buy the first two items, but need to use them to feed my family in this important time of need. So, I got creative!

Here's my ham n beans quick recipe!

1 ham stake, cubed
1 large can pinto beans, drained
1 can mild rotel
1/2 cup diced onion
1/4 cup diced red bell pepper
1 Tbsp minced garlic
Olive oil
1/2 Tbsp chili powder
1 1/2 tsp cumin
Salt & pepper

Sautee onions, garlic, and peppers in bottom of a large pot until tender. Add remaining ingredients and cover. Cook on low until a nice gravy forms and beans are very soft. Serve over brown rice.

Has a bit of a kick, but buttered bread and fruit on the side make it more bearable.
