3 smoked ham
2 lbs. dried
crushed red pepper
ground black pepper
2 teaspoon hot
Boil ham hocks 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
Note: To speed up
cooking of beans and reduce the gas beans produce, soak beans
in cold water overnight or for three hours during the day.
Serve with rice
and a meat side dish. You can also use the ham hocks as your
meat side dish. However, ham hocks are a high-fat food.
