Pinto Beans and Ham



1 (11 oz.) bag of pinto beans 

1 quart chicken stock

1 quart water

1 onion

2 Tablespoons minced garlic

2 smoked ham hocks

1 tsp black pepper

2 tsp chili powder

salt to taste

green chilies (optional)




(I personally use an Instant Pot to make beans, but if you don't have a pressure cooker, these can be made on the stove top or in a slow cooker. They'll just take quite a bit longer. You can also soak your pinto beans the night before to shorten cooking times.)



Add all ingredients to pot and pressure cook for 1 hour.  I like to release the pressure after 1 hour, stir, and pressure cook for another 30 minutes to an hour. 


Top with chopped onions and green chilies, if desired.
