Ham and Beans

For some silly reason in the month of September I have been craving ham and beans. So tonight I got busy and started making a pot. I wasn't paying any attention to the time when I put them in the pot. I can't climb up to get my crock pot right now. So I put the beans, ham and onions in along with some seasoning. As they kept cooking I kept adding more. I put tomatoes in and some bell peppers plus a little more seasoning. It is tasting pretty good but something is missing. I kept looking around and it dawned on me finally that I needed some jalapeno peppers. I tore the refrigerator apart looking for them then I remembered that I gave them to my daughter in law. I had a bowl but I will be getting some jalapeno peppers to add to it tomorrow. I made a big batch and will be freezing most of it.

We had a bad summer, the jalapeƱos peppers I seeded are still very small. I wonder if to take them inside.

I don't know if it would help if you took them inside or not. I went and got a couple of jalapenos today. Now the ham and beans taste a lot better.

@velvet53 If the temperature drops during the night, it will kill the peppers.

What does one do to seed a jalapeno pepper? Can this be done with any other type of pepper? i don't know if I ever seeded pepper as I don't know how it is done? If possible, i would like to try a green bell pepper as i think all the preparation for food is so much fun! i don't eat jalapenos as I don't eat hot things much! My mom grew them for my sister and her family especially because my nephew looked forward to picking them at each visit during the summer. He took them home, and they ate them willingly!

I remember my mother making that, not with all the peppers in it, but definitely the onions, ham, and beans. She didn't do anything extravagant. Dad taught her to cook, so she was an okay cook, not the greatest. My kids say I picked up my bland taste from her. I'm doing my best to spice it up and make my meals more tasty. Your ham and beans sounds good, though I have a feeling it would be too spicy for me.

It really wasn't spicy cause I didn't have jalapenos. I had to add hot sauce to my bowl to make it taste right. Seasonings make all the difference. At least that is my opinion.

Hope you have enough containers for storing them in the freezer. Sometimes I don't mind the cooking, but dislike that last step: put the rest away.

I sure do have enough containers. I don't like putting it away but someone has to do it. I did make up some bigger containers for my kids.

No, I use pinto or navy beans. You should try it some time. You can use bacon instead of ham. That is good also.

@velvet53 My husband use to eat extremely spicy foods, when he lived in Texas. Now, his stomach can't handle that any more. I never could eat really hot foods, but he loved em!

@kobesbuddy My oldest son can't eat spicy food like he used to. Now my youngest son and I like to see who can eat what. It is fun to do. I think that I am ahead.

I have used bacon with my beans before and I like it. Now green chilies would work great too.
