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

February 18, 2013 

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. Don’t forget, 15 BEAN SOUP can be found in every Kroger across the U.S. Add a couple of bags to your shopping list so you can have a delicious meal with very little money and effort – that’s a win/win in my book!

I have some winners to announce! Congratulations to the first round of winners:

zacnjac@ -  winner of $50 Kroger Gift Card

    Top with raw onions and serve with corn bread.

    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.
