Steak Burritos With Drunken Beans + Another Chance To Win A Kroger Gift Card & More HamBeens

Pinto HB small cropped copyHave you guys had a chance to pick up any of the varieties of HamBeens yet? If not, you really want to put a couple of bags on your Kroger shopping list. Besides being delicious and very economical - they are so easy to prepare!

My brother and his wife had their first child on Friday and I was busy cooking for them and visiting this weekend. I still had to find time to feed my crew. I decided to whip up some Drunken Beans using a bag of HamBeens Pinto Beans.

I chose these because I could let them simmer for a few hours then finish them off in less than 15 minutes. They became part of my steak burritos last night and will be used tonight with fiesta rice and chicken to become a casserole.

My cost is well under $1 per serving and I was able to knock out two meals with one pot of beans! I actually took some to my dad when I dropped off my brother's food. One bag of beans makes a HUGE pot - plenty for multiple meals!

Check out my recipe. If you guys have any to share, please email me or leave it in the comments. I'd love to see what you guys are cooking up!


Easter is just around the corner. Be sure and grab some HamBeens so you will be ready with that leftover ham bone. Don't forget to check out my recipe for Cajun 15 Bean Soup.

    One of our favorite parts of a celebration is adding HamBeens to our leftover holiday ham bone. Your drunken beans sound yummy too, may have to give them a try. Thanks for all your great deals and ideas.

  6. Amanda Price says

    I would definately try the 15 bean soup for the crock pot recipe they have listed on the website! I’m on a crock pot cooking kick and tossing in the spices, beans, and some sausage sounds so yummy, easy, and filling! I’m usually weird about cooking dry beans, but this actually looks so simple I might give it a whirl this week! Woo Hoo!

  7. Mary says

    Michelle-have you tried the Drunken Beans in your crockpot? Wondering how they turn out with slow-cooked beer?

  8. Ginger says

    We’d have to give the Steak Burritos a try first. We’d certainly be trying many others recipes soon after though.

  9. Heather says

    I would love to make chili with the 15 bean bag variety! I have already put this on my shopping list! Excited to try it!

  10. MelCross says

    I would make good old ham and beans just like my momma used to make. A little cornbread..oh so yummy

  11. Loretta says

    The Cajun 15 bean soup looks wonderful. I also would love the northern beans for some white chicken chili.

  12. Heather MCDaniel says

    I am really excited to try the steak burritios with drunken beans! =) I also “like” Hurst Beans on FB.

  13. Adrienne D. says

    Win or lose, I’m making some of those 15 Bean Cajun Burgers with Roasted Garlic Aioli. They sound yummy!

  14. Melita says

    I would love to try the drunken beans, but I am afraid 6 bottles of beer will NOT make it to the pot!

  15. vonda hobbs says

    I am going to make chili I have never tried it with these beans,but it looks like it would be good!!!!

  16. Michelle says

    Can’t have bean soup with out rice, so rice and beans it is…. def will be trying out this drunken bean recipe as well :p

  17. Stacey says

    We love ham m beans
    I would make fairly traditional ham m beans with a ham bone. We soak the beans over night, drain them, put them in a big pot the next morning, cover with water 2 inches higher than the beans. After it has cooked all day, smash with your potato masher one third of the beans to make it thick.
    Top with raw onions and serve with corn bread.

  18. Kristina B. says

    I would definitely try the Bean Sloppy Joes. Sounds like an excellent way to make sloppy joes just a tad bit healthier. Also, I liked the Facebook page as well. :)

  19. Susan says

    I actually have my own version of slow cooker refried beans.. just soaked overnight pinto beans and a big onion cooked all day. Then in the oven with a bunch of cheddar cheese on top and burritos for me!

  20. karen says

    OH i cook many things with these. one is ham and bean soup its amazing. We made your recipe for lunch Steak Burritos with Drunken Beans and NOTHING was left it was so good. we also make chili using these and spread it over nachos. A gift card to Kroger would be amazing for the family

    i liked them on facebook just now

  21. Vickie says

    Slow cooked homemade Baked Beans…sooooo good and so easy. Sometimes we add diced up pulled pork to this too. Like Sonny’s BBQ. Serve with any bbq beef, pork, chicken, burgers and dogs. Slaw, corn on the cob. Or, eat just the way the recipe goes…great Vegetarian Alternative if leave meat out.

    yumm, chili with those drunken beans sounds really good; it’ll definitely calm this cold ive been having all week.

  23. Sheila K. says

    I would use their Green Split Peas with Ham Flavor in my slow cooker, along with diced onion, crumbled bacon, and pepper, to make a big pot of hearty green pea soup!

  24. Didi Higareda says

    I don’t know the exact recipe as I do by hand, but I like the beans boiled in water with bacon and cilantro. The taste is subtle and you can add salt to taste, but it is delicious 😀

  25. Cam says

    I would make chili with the Hurst beans. They are my go to when I am in a pinch to come up with a great meal for supper.

  26. Iris says

    I would love to try the Cajun 15 bean soup adding potatoes and sausage and cook into a thick chunky soup for a great meal when you add crusty bread.

  27. C. says

    I am going to try your recipe as soon as I get back to the store. I love most of the recipes that you do we must have the same great taste.
