  • 1 14.5 Ounce Can Diced Tomatoes With Green Chilies

  • Salt and Pepper to Taste

  • About 2 Teaspoons Franks’ Red Hot Sweet Chili Sauce

  2. Cover and cook on high for 5-6 hours.

Notes
*For the leftover ham, I used what was left of the ham shank I cooked the other night. You could also cut up a ham steak, use sausage or pork. Since this is a “Whip It Up Wednesday” recipe, I threw this together based on what I had in my pantry. You could make this with white beans, pinto beans, whatever you like.  

This week’s Whip It Up Wednesday recipe is made from the leftover ham I had from my Crock-Pot Ham and Potatoes.   I wanted to make a ham and bean soup like this Bonnie Bean Soup but had to fudge it a little for what ingredients I actually had. Their recipe calls for pasta but I chose to make this with just the beans and meat.  (I made this soup on the 23rd but technical difficulties forced me to have to push this blog post back a week.)
