Directions Step-By-Step

Southern Pinto Beans

3 smoked hamhocks

2 pounds dried pinto beans

1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

... 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper

1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper

1/2 teaspoon salt

2 teaspoons hot sauce

1/2 medium chopped onion

Boil hamhocks on high heat for 45 minutes. Add all seasonings except hot sauce and onion. Continue boiling for 20 minutes. Add pinto beans, hot sauce, and onion. Boil on medium heat until beans are done to taste.

Serve with cornbread and greens. You can also use the hamhocks as your meat side dish.

Very good recipe. I didn't have onion or ham hocks so I used salt pork and onion powder. Can only imagine how good it would be with the correct ingredients! Thank you!
