1 ham bone
2 cups chopped carrots
3 cans black beans (do not drain)
1 medium onion
2 TBS chili powder
salt & pepper to taste
Boil ham bone in 3 cups water for 1 1/2 hours. Remove from pot. Add carrots; cook 10 minutes. Add onion; cook 10 more minutes. *In the meantime, pull ham meat from bone and cut into bite size pieces.* Add beans, including the juices. Add chili powder. Return ham (without bone) to pot. Stir well. Simmer for 5-10 minutes. Salt & pepper to taste. My kids love this.
* I wouldn't recommend using a glazed ham bone ... the flavor would throw everything off.
